Poetry: The Real Me

Awesome!! #PowerWrittenWord …..


the real me

The Real Me        


My mask charmed you

But you don’t like what’s underneath

The real me

Who sometimes can barely breathe


I tried to be gentle

Protect you from the horror in my life

The real me

Who is always trying to survive


Bit by bit, I showed you who I am

But you didn’t like what you saw

The real me

Damaged, but proud and raw


So many years gone by

And you gave up without a fight

The real me

Eventually she will be alright


To keep myself, I had to lose you

But it did break my fragile heart

The real me

Made us drift apart


My mask charmed you

It’s the real me you don’t want to see

But you know

Just Me is all I really want to be…

Just Patty

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
