Lifting My Shroud

Don’t mistake this shroud around me as a cover for who I really am
It is merely a way for me to silence my world that seems almost out of hand

You assume you have no idea who I am because I cover myself at night
You seem to think that closing my eyes would stop my brain from taking flight

Don’t take my silence as checking out from my personality
When it is obvious to me that silence within me is exactly what I need

What makes you think things would be better if I never took this space
At times a shroud is all I need to stop from screaming in your face

You seem perplexed that I shed so many tears
can’t you see I shroud my anger, my sadness and my fears

Don’t waste your time trying to change me in to what you think I should be
I will do what I want to do until I am ready to see a change in me.

Don’t spin reality into something more than it really is because it works for you
My reality is far different and the outcome may be worse if you do
