Meet Yourself

Hidden behind your gregarious façade
Noise to drown out any insecurities
That might try venture to the surface
A personality trying to be larger than life
Not ready to excavate the rubble of breath
That buries your true spirit beneath
Suppressed to near extinction
But fissures appear when you’re not looking
Too busy keeping up fake appearances
Allowing a brief glimpse of a beautiful soul
Whom I would love to get to know
I wish you peace and understanding
Ignore attention seeking words that hurt
And bid you insight and compassion
That you might meet your magical soul self
