The Real Me

I want to show you the real me,
Not just what you think you see,
I like to dress in black, not pink,
My dark poems will make you think,
I can't always be happy like you,
For I am sad, and often blue,
My soul was dying to break free,
To be the person I wanted to be,
I have hid my true self for many years,
While deep inside, crying many tears,
But, now I am showing the real me,
And you are just starting to see,
I'm emerging in the dark poetry I write,
The difference is like day and night.

    Thank you for your kind words, Paul. I was very touched by them....When I first came to Poetry Soup, I was writing a lot of darker poems, like this one. But, lately my poetry has become lighter and not so serious. I'm glad that you can except me for who I am. :)

    Hi Kelly, once more an excellent write by you. Not many people are ready to ever reveal there true selves. Indeed it hurts to hide your inner self, to try and be something your not for other people. Let yourself be free, be what you are, liberate yourself by being yourself. That really sounds wierd doesn't it? I think you know what I mean. You never change who you are for anyone. It always hurts the more when yu try to be something you aren't. Have a good day. Later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    I do understand, and I agree with you, Mike. Sometimes, we have to get away from ourselves, every now and then! It would be a miserable existence if we lived our lives how others wanted us to. But, we have to go our own way, and be who we want to be. No matter what other people might think. Thank you once again, Mike!

    Kelly What a wonderful and honest write about showing the inner you that a lot of people try and hide. You let it out and let us see. HHHMM should we be scared. LOL Thanks for the great and insightful comment on my False Friendship poem.

    Jake sums it up quite nicely. Nicely portrayed Kelly.

  1. Date: 9/12/2013 2:44:00 PM

    The willingness to reveal ourselves is something we must yield to if we ever hope to communicate our true makeup.... and we must let people see what makes us want to create if we ever hope to succeed. You have done this very well... Love ya dearly.... Jake

    VERY BEAUTIFUL COMMING OUT OF YOUR SHELL I HAVE ONE JUST RIGHT UP YOUR STREET MOTHER PEARL

    Oooh, this one is really dark. Do you write based on your feelings, or sometimes imagine a situation and write about it? I am usually in the imagination mode.

    I think a little bit of both. I didn't have the perfect life when I was growing up, so, I think some of my darker stuff comes from there...which is hidden deep inside somewhere, but, occasionally it comes out.
