Show And Tell - Poem by LaTisha Parkinson

It's Easy to be fake,
It's harder to be real.
It's only because I'm scared.
That the real me would be seen.

No, I don't wear a mask,
I like my face.
I hide behind my skin,
It's like a protective case.

I'm real online.
Real as can be.
And that's because we'll never meet,
I know you can't see me.

By that I mean, naked.
Vulnerable. Knowing me inside out.
If we meet, you'll be the first
To know me, no doubt.

I'm just a coward
A turtle in a shell.
I can't explain
But I'm afraid to show and tell
