Outside of Myself


Outside I am confident

Outside I am a bubbling personality

But inside I am a ball of fear

Disorder: Anxiety.

I put on a strong face,

I won't let them see me sweat.

They don't know I see a therapist,

At least, not yet.

I smile and wave,

I brave the crowd.

But they're all too close,

And they're all too loud.

But I make it, I fake it,

Because they can't know.
