Goodbye Tricks, Hello Me

Location

Why do I hide who I am?

Do I hide out of fear?

Do I hide because I’m ashamed?

Do I hide because I don’t really know who I am?

I hide for all these reasons

 

I don’t hide my feelings

I don’t hide my passions

I don’t hide my dislikes

I don’t hide my likes

I hide something more

 

The fear of failure

The shame from things I’ve done

The unknown

I hide all of this

 

How do I stop hiding?

How do I get over my fears?

How do I forgive myself for things I’ve done?

How do I find out who I am?

 

I must find people who accept me

I must accept my fears and overcome them

I must forgive myself for the mistakes I’ve made

I must ask myself ‘Who are you?’

 

When I accept myself, the smoke will clear, 

When I accept myself, the mirrors wll crack

When I accept myself, the curtain will drop

When I accept myself, I will be free
