In the Dark

In the dark I can see
For the first time the real me.
When all lights fade and I'm alone,
I hear the thoughts that are my own.
The quiet whispers shout out-loud
And I am left to wonder how
The person who I used to be
Transforms into the real me.
The insecurities I face
All seem to find their secret place.
I smile as I realize
That despite the daily lies,
I am who I want to be
When in the dark I look at me.
