“I am not my confidence”

What you see, and what I be
Is not necessarily what
Really is.
If you see me stroll by with confidence
It may not be the actual
Of my heart.
My attitude may suggest
I have it all together
When inside I may be
Crying or dying or
Trying or
For love, or for someone
To just say they care.
I may need to be comforted
Even though
My demeanor is my armor.
Please look past it
And see me.
