Lies Vs. Truth
Amy M Kennedy

I am but a woman who hides behind a mask
Always joking, never wanting anyone to know the real me
Pretending to be who you're not is a real task
I jump through hoops of fire...when all I really want is for people to let me be
Secrets I hide within my heart, never to let anyone know
However inside of me the truth forever it shall grow
Tears fall down my face, as they escape my eye
Wondering if I'll ever truly know who I am...I let out a sigh
Often times confusion rules my soul and heart
Wondering when this game of pretend first got its start
Maybe one day I will be happy, once my soul is free
Until then I shall remain the same me I am...carrying on this facade of being so truly happy
p.s. i apologize for the dreariness of this poem. i have hit a low spot, but im o.k.



 ~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~

LOL Amy this is cute, but a poem with
contradictions  -----through the whole
poem you tell us how you "pretend"
then in the end tell us you are truthful.

Got my funny bone. hehe, sorry - I hope
it was meant to make me laugh.

If not- we don't know why we start these
facades in our lifes -- probably too many
daggers got through and so we pretend to
be happy and joke at life etc. so we don't
get crushed again.  Or, you see it in the
people around you, and sense they are not
what they portray.

Either way, pretending is not the answer.
Tell it like it is -----and enjoy watching
the people's faces drop around you ---)

I jump through hoops of fire...when all I really want is for people to let me be

hoops of fire, that is the perfect way of describing what your feeling. Great poem, I hope you feel better.

Amy~ sorry you're at a low spot, I hope it's better soon. I know for me to say to be who you are and to hell with everyone else would be easy, as I don't walk in you shoes, but you really should.   -SEA
