Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~ Charles W. Eliot

A room without books is like a body without a soul. ~Cicero

Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of your heart. ~ Mort Walker

Many times the reading of a book has made the future of a man ~ Ralph Emerson

like people never see the real you? And I'm not even talking about when you are hiding behind masks of security, but rather when you are completely honest with them and they still fail to see you? Like no matter how hard you try to be real, people seem intent on covering up everything that makes you, you? Or if you do show them the real you they try to deny that is you, you couldnt possibly be that way they say, or why would you like that, etc.

Let me tell you something...

Just continue to be you. Let them ignore or not notice the real you, for it doesnt matter if they do. What matters is that you are real to yourself. For the minute you start to put on masks, etc that is the point in your life where it will start being harder to be you. And if you are not careful, someday you might find it impossible to be real again, at least not at a great cost to you. For the longer you wear masks and hide your true self, the easier it gets to fall into a pattern of covering up who you are.

But dont promise me that you will remain true to yourself, for what kind of a promise is that, one made to one who hides behind her screen? No, you must make this promise to yourself, the person you know best. Promise yourself you will always be true to you.

I am surrounded, yet I am alone.

My one true friend has got up and moved on.

And though I am happy for them

It’s hard to see that there will ever be a dawn.

 

My secret keeper, my truest friend is gone.

The one I dared to tell all my hopes and dreams

The one who I shared my every thought

Has gone away it seems.

 

For though my friend is still here,

They might as well as not

They are caught up in an amazing moment

Or otherwise I would have fought

 

But who am I to take that from them?

Yes I miss all of our talks and laughs

And yes I wish they were spending their time with me

But to wish to take that from them would be quite daft.

 

So here I sit, watching from the windows of my soul

Both happy and sad that they are no longer just for me

Would that I could rewind the years that have slipped by

Just so once again it would just be us I see.

 

For I am not ready for them to move on,

I still need a shoulder to cry on

Secrets I wish to share burn inside

Wish that they weren’t as good as gone.

Tragedies are our test,

To see just what we do best.

Will we fall apart at what we see,

Or will we become who we are meant to be?

 

Some days seem so long,

While others you blink and they are gone

Sometimes life just seems to want you beat,

To see if you can take the heat.

 

Tragedies are our test,

This isn’t a jest.

For when we go through things we can come out stronger

Learn we can keep going a little longer.

 

Life can be so peaceful and calm

Those moments remembered as a soothing balm

A time to rest, to restore peace

Some call it a new lease.

 

Tragedies are our test,

Some you feel you should wear a safety vest.

But whether we give in or fight is not the question

It’s whether we have learned our lesson

 

For while they are our test, to be tested we must have learned.

And when there is a past, there are corners that have been turned.

The moments when you find yourself, are not those moments of rest

But rather in the moments when you take a test.

 

Tragedies are our test.

 

How safe a secret can make you feel?  Not your oooh I have a secret I really want to share kind, but the give false information so that people will like me, so im not the odd man out, etc kind? Secrets can be used like a mask, hiding details about us, we can have layers and layers of secrets that have only certain people who can access each area.

You feel safe in the knowledge that you are accepted, but there is another feeling these kinds of secrets can bring, the feeling of being trapped. You half want to stay in the accepted zone, but at the same time you would love for some one to see the real you, but your still scared that you will be an outsider if you do so you keep your secrets.

Fear of losing those you love and respect and treasure keep you from being the real you. I am personally trying to be more myself with those in my life, but let me tell you, it is hard. Even the slightest feeling of disapproval and I am running back to my secrets, my mask for protection. They have been my safety nets for so long it's hard to let go.

Will I ever be truly free of all my secrets?  No, I don't think I will, but I'm okay with that so long as I have a few less to wear. Excuse my ramblings,  but it's late and I am both tired and feeling a little hurt over something unrelated that put me in a thinking mood.
