The truth is I will never say. For who I am will seem very different if you knew the history behind me. So I wear a mask hiding my truth behind and hoping know one will pull it away. For perception stains reality and I won’t allow you to stain the careful one I created to the world. In the end the truth doesn’t really have to be told if the reality of today is not what one will be seeing.
