Many of us suffer from this conflict. There is a huge gap between our public persona and our inner self. I’ve explored this in my poem below.
I have a big heart
I don’t flinch when people hurt me
I bear their insults without lashing back
This is what I like to show others
While inside my heart breaks into a million pieces
I feel the hurt but keep smiling to cover it
Sometimes I feel like a hypocrite
But I console myself with this thought that
Acting magnanimous gives me an advantage
My heart may feel the hurt but I’m not the one inflicting it!
