I thought that’s what you saw, looking at me
I wondered if you saw through my straight face and serious eyes
To the part that stays far inside
Covered up in masked confidence and silence
I wondered if you could tell who I really am
Underneath the shades of black and words, I say to appear wise
To the pieces, large and small, that are not confident at all
I wonder how you think of me and belong
Do you see I don’t belong; Do you see I am alone?
Or. Do you see what I want you to see? Masked confidence and fancy words. Covering up the pieces. Of deep fear. That I will never let you see.
