Be yourself

Do you ever feel scared
to reveal all sides of you
in fear of everyone turning against you
not for something bad
no record do you have
but for just being you?

For you're supposed to stand tall
not crumble and fall
be the encourager
put on a front
and be bold.

But that's not healthy
you know that to be so
yet people might leave
if you dared let it show.

You can't hide it forever though
the mask is breaking
bit by bit
your face is showing

will you continue lying
like the pierrot of old
or will you finally be brave
and say.
You're not ok

the words of the past
still to this day doth last
and you have begun to believe
every bit of them.
