Which is really you,

the person behind the curtain,

or the person your

best friend

boyfriend

parent

ecclesiastical leader

God

sees? Which is really you, the person you think you are or the one you think you ought to be?

Isn't your body a 

reflection

a reflection of your soul?
(Is it?)

 

(Or is the true beauty

truly

<on the inside.>

?)

 

Because truthfully there's three people in your head



the person you ARE

the person you THINK YOU ARE

the person EVERYONE ELSE THINKS YOU ARE.

 

one, two, three.

 

the real you, the physical, mental, spiritual, social, quantifiable person in that noggin

 

isn't affected by perception (yours or your boyfriend's)

 

it isn't affected by how much your clothes cost

or how much makeup you wear

or how long your hair is

or whether the aforementioned boyfriend is real or made up in a foolhardy attempt to make that cutie in physics jealous

 

the real you isn't just behind the curtain, it's behind your perception, it's behind the social mirror that tells you to become the person outside the curtain.

 

 

(your real self

would

 

never

 

tell you to do that.)

 

 

which is really you

the person you see

the person your mom sees

or the one who is actually reading this

recognizing this

struggling to recognize itself.

 

you're in there. 

don't

just find the person behind the curtain

 

 

(find the person behind perception.)
