Mask Of The Self Conscious... - Poem by MaddiiAnne O'Leary

If I looked deep into my own self conscious what would I find?
Would I find strength, happiness and fearlessness;
Or would I find nothing, a blank canvas or a complete clear slate;
Or would I find confusion, darkness and anger?

If you find the first your an optimist;
If you find the second you are a person who has amnesia;
If you find the last you are like me... You are a Pessimist.

You take of a mask that you are wearing and find yourself still there;
Where as with me I lift off the mask and all I find is Hatred, Anger and Confusion...
