Beguiling Anonymity

I’m guessing a lot of people have felt this way.

Have you ever been afraid
to meet somebody in person
for fear of what they’d think
if they ever actually met you?

Maybe it’s your appearance
Or the sound of your voice
Or some special mannerisms
That are the focus of your fear

The belief that we will not be liked
Does two things, usually:
Inspires even more doubt and fear in us, or
Turns us cruelly indifferent

If you are one of those who doubt and fear,
You may feel a desire to hide from the world
To remain anonymous, or to
Pretend you are someone other than you are

But you must be yourself

For the only love you can truly feel, or know

Is love of truly-you
