The Real Persona
god, I hate that word “phony”.
even the way your mouth pronounces phony is unbearable.
according to the webster dictionary,
phony means “intended to deceive or mislead”
being called a phony can really kick something in someone.
maybe that’s why I hate that word phony,
because it’s supposed to be used to abuse me
but it only is stating a fact.
I am a phony.
I hide my true self from others.
is it because I am afraid of their judgment or is it because I am terrified of myself?
if I admitted to everyone that I am indeed a phony,
what reason will I have to not face myself?
I say I do not love myself, but is it because it is difficult to see any good in me
or is it because I simply do not wish to?
I am a phony to others as well as myself.
and in that way, is not everyone a phony?
