Why do I lie?
Pretend I’m something I’m not?
Why make up stories, to excuse myself from the truth
Why do I shake in fear, that someone might see the real me?
I think I know the answer
But answers are not what these forums are for
Answers are not what we seek.
But I’ll be fair, and let you in on my secret.
The answer is that it is just not comfortable, or safe, being me.
