Can I Be True?

Can you see me for who I truly am,
Or should I stay hidden behind a mask?
Can I trust you with my secret,
And not be in fear?
Will you laugh at me if I tell you?
I am different, and I will not change.
There are others like me,
Will you laugh at them as well?
Can you be happy with who I am?
Will you stand by my side when I need you,
Or will you run?
I cannot be sure of your feelings
If you hide them from me.
Let me show who I am without a mask,
Let me know I can trust you.
Tell me that you are happy with who I am
And stand strong beside me when difficult task is before me.
Tell me I can be myself around you
And that I do not have to change.
