Around people,
I break rules.
Limits serve no purpose,
Commands have no effect.

I am strong,
I am confident,
I am humorous,
I am everything I try to make people believe.

But that isn’t me.

When they’re all gone, the true me emerges.
I am vulnerable.
I am manipulatable.
I am uncertain about everything.

And when people perceive me as a loud,
Care free,
I can’t help but smile.

At least they don’t know,
How alone,
I truly am.
