Poem About Creating A False Identity To Cover Up Hurt

I may only be a young teen, but I have created a false identity. It started in first grade. Everybody was picked on, so I became a stone. I didn't care about anything or anyone.

False Identity

Published: February 2016

Sometimes
I wish that you could see
This scared girl inside of me.
I'm not really as I seem.
I'm not tough, strong, or mean.
That isn't me.

This isn't the real me.
I fight by day,
Yet cry at night.
No one can see through
My false identity.

I've been hurt,
As you can see,
So I created
A fake me.

No one ever tries
To get through my shield.
All I want to be is me.

How do I show
What I've kept hidden for years?
How do I show
All the silent fears?

What would you think
If I showed you me?
What would you say
Without my false identity?

When I first came into public school, I realized how cruel the world could be. This mask I've created is suffocating me! I can't breathe and the false life that I've created is holding me back from doing what I want. But I can't just stop being that fake me.
