31

I know the truth
You think you do
but you don't
I'm strong
I'm fragile
I'm young
I'm old

I know the truth
You think you do
but you don't
I'm wise
I'm faking
I'm content
I'm hungry

I know the truth
You think you do
but you don't
I'm smiling
I'm lying
I'm laughing
I'm bleeding

I know the truth
You think you do
but you don't
I'm beautiful
I'm ugly
I'm giving
I'm longing

I know the truth
You think you do
but you don't
I'm brave
I'm trembling
I'm busy
I'm hiding

I know the truth
You think you do
but you don't
And I want you
to see beyond the front
to know more than me
the layers beneath
the core, the Desire
that makes up
31 of me.
