What's Real

Where has my life brought me to 
Putting up more walls to keep people out
Still afraid to let the real me be free
Wearing my mask to cover the truth
Hiding behind a false me
Not wanting to face the reality of what my life has become
Numerous lies entangled around the other me
The me people think is me
The me that im really not
The truth of me behind the walls of my mind
In the dark shadows of what im personified as
Not wanting to see the light
And have the truth of me revealed
