Identity Crisis Please ignore my foolish pride  I would chose not to hide  How I hate to wear this mask  If only I wasn’t so afraid to ask  I would chose not to trick And present you my true speak 

How I wish to show my true nature  How I hope to show my raw soul  And to you display the real creature  All my substance as a whole 

I desire to be me more bluntly,  To be me in every event  Without concessions without being frightened  I aspire to be honest with me and you I desire to be seem by another  Beyond this distorted mirror image  Projected to hide myself.

But instead of this In my cowardice  I wear this glittering mask for you And a myriad  more for others  Always replacing the previous by the latest Discarding the empty disguise 

Aspiring to be the object of desire for you and to the rest Enchanting you and them with my dazzling superficial illusion   With my mundane and trivial artifice,  Full of shinning nothingness 

Don’t be fooled by my  art  All my endurance is contrived  Don’t be misled by my composed carapace  Behind my foam facade Lies  a turbulent stream of violence  Can’t you distinguish?  Squeezed by the compressing margins   In my core there lays hurt and anguish

I plead with you to see me beyond my illusion  There are some many disguises inside the confusion. And you will not distinguish  my true me I crave to be ultimately free

How I yearn to pull this mask,  And peel away my fake camouflaged skin  And show everybody my emotional scars my imperfections All this fear of rejection

When every neighbouring glass ceiling  starts to fall I want to be on the outside  Naked, nothing to hide  Shameless to show it to all  

Without consequence assuming who I’m In plenitude in a unyielding way  But I can’t count on me for this, my will is frail  Nonetheless you my friend must prevail 

And so incapable of performing this worthy task,  I rely on you  To rip away my mask Allowing  to see me trough

Accept me with my flaws I will gratefully receive yours Tear my mask with your claws Heal my soul were it sours

Freed me of my emptiness See me for who I’m Fill me with wholeness Trough away this hologram
