Guest Ramblings: The Real Me

Hey Everyone!

I got another poem but this time it was sent anonymously. I am so moved by the positivity of #poemup and I hope it continues. I asked permission and he/ she agreed to me to post this for everyones reading pleasure. It’s quite a sad poem but I think a lot of people can identify to it.

Whoever you are I hope you get to write more. And I would be more than happy to post them here in the blog.

Love Lots,

Joan Gillen


THE REAL ME by Anonymous

Why do I feel this way?

What’s wrong with me?

Insecure and inadequate

Why can’t you see?

I put on my mask

A happy smile is what I wear

I wonder silently

Does anyone care?

The life of the party

As I flirt, flutter and flee

Behind the fake smile

Do you see the real me?
