The world is a deceptive place, you might get lost into it, but it is important to find yourself and rise again...

I hide my mysterious secrets,

from the eyes of

this crazy world.

I fear that I'll be judged.

I hesitate to present

my true inner self.

I want my image,

not to be smudged.

I chose closure,

over all the openness,

Constantly hiding,

my every brokenness.

I did all of this,

for the world to see me perfect.

Forgetting that life

itself has a defect.

And soon one day

I realized that now I regret

I lived for others,

standing true to what they expect.

For the people,

I do not see around,

Once I stood for them too,

and now they have let me down.

Now, I have burst my bubble,

I won't hesitate to be who I am,

I will live by my terms

Ruling my life again.
