My favorite personal quote is, I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou


Like a flower in the summer heat
Red flower, flowing side to side in the breeze
Different from the others in some way
Quieter, taller, redder
But yet is judged on the exterior rather than the interior
Never having the opportunity to be chosen
Always seems to be left behind
Always having to hide away it's secret self
Who it really is, having to blend in with the others
When will it finally have enough
When will it break through
Its tired of holding in the burden
When will it be free to grow,
Be who it's always wanted to be
When will it show it's secret self

I think this is just about how everyone feels, especially if their different. Theirs always a time when we need to show who we really are.

i really like the your idea of the 'secret self.' i think that sometimes, though, we aren't necessarily holding anything back.  Rather, those around us don't let themselves see the truth for whatever reason(s).
