I am integrated with a lifetimes worth of experiences.
Highs-lows
Laughs-cries
Loves-hates
All culminate to form,
My Real Self.
But this is not the self I choose
To reveal to the world outside.
That self wears a myriad masks,
And these masks though all unique.
Perform but one task,
To disguise My Real Self from prying eyes.

Sharon, I really liked the message behind this one and the form seemed to work well for it.

I understand for trying to want to hide, but you gotta open up sometime and let people love you for who you are. Hurt comes along with that, but joy also. The most wonderful kind. Love from the Lord. For He loves you just as you are.
