Unmasked

Who am I you ask?
Well let me take off my mask.
In reality I’m just like you
But oh so different too
 
Everyone tries to get ahead of the pack
But doing that, yourself is what you lack
When you look into the mirror you see someone else
So now you don’t even know yourself
 
In the end we are all human beings
Yet we get so caught up in feelings
What does she or he think of me?
So much that you can’t be free
 
We are all homo sapiens
Yet we all want to come out the champion
When in reality we are all the same
Even though some have fame
 
Society tries to put celebrities  and ethnicities on a higher pedestal
When all of us are just as credible
Because each of us are special
No matter what is told to you by the devil
 
Even though you’re special just by being you, your flaws make you even more so
Embrace your flaws and insecurities and let them glow
Don’t let the filters in life hide your light
Because just the way you are, you shine bright
 
So who am I you asked?
I am myself unmasked at last
 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
