Be Real

Inspired by a youth event at my church called Be Real.


3. I Am Hidden

The real me, a hundred skins
 Down from what you see.
 The real me, wrapped up tight
 Away from prying eyes.

So long hidden that I can't remember
 Freedom to act and be me.
 So long buried that I don't know
 How to be carefree of judgment and be me.

The real me, drowned by a country
 Who prides itself upon individuality.
 The real me, crushed by aims
 For perfection and order.

But like a phoenix from the ashes
 Fighting courageously for new life
 The real me is rising
 To surface and be free,
 To savour life and be me.
