By: Michael Reynolds

A life,
so vivid,
so clear,
so seemingly happy to those around me,
a mask,
a secret,
a lie,
hidden torment,
what others see is not truly what I am,
a monster,
a savage,
an abomination,
a life which no one understands,
a burden,
a scapegoat,
the pain that keeps me alive,
the hurt that keeps me going,
this hell they call life.

Michael Reynolds
