FREE TO BE ME

Written by: Brian Strand

Can we really be
known by another.
Known and understood.
Others may hear us speak,
read our words,hear us 
opine,recite our lines aloud,
discuss our art,judge 
our work ,but do they really
know.What part of our 
fa├žade is real and true,which
part we withhold?What is our
shame,the reality we alone
may know,private thoughts
concealed,perhaps confessed
if intimacy allow.Yes,we and 
God alone know all.He won't tell,
will we,perhaps, if free to be!

Inspired by Delacroix's diary quote.
