The Real You

Thu, 06/04/2015 - 00:40 -- linzyh
As I stare into the depths of your eyes,
I see the real you,
Not your fake smiles,
Or your deceptive laughs;
No, I see the person behind the facade
I see the desperation to fit in,
Your cloaked anger
And your crushed soul,
I see the loneliness and the masked fear
I see what no one else does,
I see the real you
This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
