Two Faces

I am told that
I am inclusive, happy
And free, but it
that me? Or someone
I'm pretending to be?
Others say I am
intimidating, cold, even cruel
yet I wonder, who
is being fooled? I
have two faces, but
neither are mine. I
Wear a mask, but
have not seen it
and therefore cannot
take it off. When
I think I am
Myself, people scoff.
So I turn cold,
and my attackers flee.
Then all grows quiet
and I am left alone
with just me and my,
Two Faces.
