Mirrors

When I walk down these crowded hallways I know they do not see who I really am....the person I have lead them all to belive. Years and years of hurt and dissapointment from the ones I have trusted most lead me to create a whole different person. This person walks around happy and smileing to gaurd people of the hurt and the pain. Sometimes I enjoy being this carefree person with no worries, but as soon as I step in front of a mirror the person I tried to hide comes flying back to the surface. I began to wonder if by trying so hard not to hurt others that I began to hurt myself? I lost the person I used to be I got her confused with the person I made up and now I have no clue who I am.......so i will continue being the person I created and I will hopefully find out who I really am supposed to be!!!

i understand you completly. I walk around my school being someone im not. They im happy but im dying on the inside :( i want to be me. but Im not sure how to show it, but i hope that one day i will be able to show the world who the real me is and i hope you can 2 :)

Its always a little hard though, sometimes the fear of dissapointing someone is always a problem
