The first thing I do when i wake up

is look at myself in my mirror

But

Why is it

that I see

another person

A person
who smiles all the time
who has no problems
who knows who he is
oh how I wish I could be this boy

Everyone sees him
While I see
a boy who doesn’t smile because he wants too
he does it to make you believe
he’s happy
that he has no care in the world
But that boy knows deep inside
he might be fooling everyone else
but he knows he can’t fool himself


The author's comments:
I'm putting together this story of a boy named Mason Gonzalez, who seems to have fallen into a rut when he starts to feel out of place in his body he doesn't feel like mason but an intruder. These poems show how he progressed throughout the cycle of finding out his sexuality the hard way.
