If Only They Really Knew Me. . .

a poem by Rhonda Strickland

I only show them
What they want to see.
They have these expectations
Pulling, always pulling at me.

I act as if I’m a caged bird,
As if they have control over me.
But little do they know that
My act is what is saving me.

I smile, I pretend
To my own end.
I play their game
They think I bend.

Ah, they think they own me.
Their plans are all laid out
I will bring them fame and fortune.
They know without a doubt.

If only they really knew me.
They might take care with what they do.
But it will be too late for them.
Oh, if they only knew.
