My brave face.
Will I let you see the real me?
Behind my mask.
Will I let you in?
You think you know me.
It is only a part.
The happy face that I share online.
The one where everything is fine.
Everything is okay.
I allow you glimpses every now and then.
But my mask is functional.
A hard exterior designed to keep you out.
To hide my vulnerability.
What if we put down the mask?
Shared a lot more of ourselves.
It is certainly okay to hold some things back.
But what do we have to lose in revealing a bit more.
Revealing our art.
Speaking our truth.
For today, let us decide to be more honest.
And see where this takes us today.
