The Real Me

Sun, 08/24/2014 - 16:37 -- nsussan

I've always hid behind the curtain

Walls of every color

Too afraid for them to know the real me

Afraid of acceptance

Afraid of appreciation 

Afraid it won't be the same

But now it's time they know

The me I've always been

Adventurous and Bold

Bold and Beautiful

Beautiful and Creative

Creative and Chancing

Taking chances because you never know what's on the other side

The other side of that curtian I've been hiding behind for so long

 

The Real me

The truth is

I don't know who I am

I'm exactly who I've always been

That scared little girl

With a big heart and a big dream

Going far but never wanting to go the distance

Loving to travel but having no idea where to go

Loving to write but too afraid to fail

Being successful but with everything wrong

The real me

Is someone you'd never guess 

The Real me

Is someone you'll just have to meet to figure out
