The Real Me - Poem by Charlie F. Kane

Would you still be able to love me,
If you could see behind this façade?
How would you feel if you saw
The Real Me?

This mask I wear
Is only for show,
To ease the pain
Of being. But,
What would you think
If I let my mask slip?
What you hate what you
Found behind its hollow eyes?
Would you make me take
The rest of the mask off,
So you can see The Real Me?

Behind the mask
Is only me, the part
Of me that hasn’t seen
The light of day,
Would you still be able
To love me, knowing about
The Real Me?

    Sometimes it is hard to release the real us for fear of what others may think.
    But if they are true it will not matter.
    Lovely thinking here Daniel
