Poem: You think you know me


You think you know me
But do you really know

You think you know me
The pain and the hurt I’ve hidden
Discovering each day

You think you know me
I’m not afraid anymore
Of the light each day

You think you know me
The courage it takes to muster
To leave outside my door

You think you know me
The bravery I imagine
Engaging you right now

You think you know me
The talent I’ve hidden
From the laughter of others

You think you know me
You see me as familiar
You see me as open

You think you know me
I’ve kept a mask on
To hide myself

You think you know me
I am discovering me
I have yet to know me
