When you look in the mirror!
Or you’re face to face with your mother!
Perhaps talking to a small child!
It’s really you?
You might still attempt to cover it up!
Perhaps put on a happy face.
Maybe tell a little white one!
But you’re really there!
The actual you!
Not the you that you take to work!
Or the you that parties with your friends!
Or even the you that rolls your eyes when talking to your lover!
The true, real, naked YOU!
So take a deep breath.
Lower the veil.
Step from behind the screen.
And accept who you are.
It’s what everyone has been waiting for!
And they deserve to see the authentic YOU
For as you become YOU and you will lead me to ME!
