“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”-wizard of OZ

They feel like I’m perfect in every way, they feel like I’m a suck-up just to get my way, they feel like i'm a teachers pet who does their work the correct way. But that’s just on one side of my wall, the side I want people to see. Every body lives a double life and sometimes they don’t even realize it. Weather its one side or the other only one person gets to see it; and that person is yourself unless you decide to drop the wall. I feel like you want to beat up people, I feel like you love to get in trouble, I feel like everything has to go your way, and I feel like you don’t like people. But that’s just the side you want me to see and I know you don’t want to be like that because every now and then you show a little part of the side you think no one can see but the truth is the whole world saw it and so did you. The wall is meant to be broken piece by piece until you’re on the other side; if you don’t care what people think about the real you. Judgment is physically and mentally hurtful and that’s what I am afraid of and until I concur that fear the only thing you will see of me is a wall
