Duality

Inside
Is where I dwell
Beautiful dark thoughts
Frightening Images
Joy and sorrow
Combine into the man I long to be

Outside
I’m so bitter
Superficial smile betrays my thoughts
Word’s I never meant to speak
Actions pull me from my center
The winds of life take me where they will

Two lives I live
The man inside and the face you see
Oh how I long to be the real me
Life is what I make it but somehow I can’t find the will
Curse this life and the mire of the mundane
Away the demons that forever draw me from my true self

This pen is the bridge, my release
Would that I could cast off this callous persona
But would I find acceptance in the real
Or should I climb inside to behold my own reflection
What would I see there
Could I bear that truth
