I Hide, You Hide, We All Hide

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 23:20 -- Truax

No one will know the true you

They may think they do

But don’t have a clue

As sad as it may seem

The world will just see a gleam

We are all scared

I’m scared

You’re scared

To come out and show the world of who we are

Instead we close the door and hide far

Their laughs

Their smirks

It hurts

I build

You build

We all build

A small wall

So we crawl behind to seem not that tall

Too afraid to show the real me

The world will never see
