You Dont Know Me

Updated on August 16, 2016
BeccaHubbardWoods profile image

I am a mother, a metal head, a goth girl, and lover of all darkness. I'm also a writer, a cake decorator, and a general weirdo. FUN!

Who is Mizzery?

Pleased to meet you.


You think you know me.

You've got my number.

You've seen people like me before!

You know what I'm all about.


You know what I want you to

Nothing more, nothing less.

You could call me a facade

A fake, a phony, a fraud.


Whatever you decide I am

Don't ever make the mistake

of thinking you know me

Because you don't know me.


I am good, I am evil

I am loving, I am hateful

I am weak, I am strong

I am love, I am hate

I want you, I hate you

You need me, I don't need you


I am beautiful, I am hideous

I am gracious, I am selfish

I'm an angel, I'm a demon

I am God, I am Satan


Constantly contradicting my own image

I'm a peacekeeper, I'm a fighter

You never know which face you'll see

I'm the victim, I'm the rapist.


I will build an image of myself in your mind

it's nothing of reality

You will believe what I want you to

because that's exactly what I want.



I am honest, I'm a liar

I am thoughtful, I am greedy

I am one, I am all

I am me, I am you

I am misery, I am becca

I am their mother, I am their father

I am me, I am you.

    I like the use of duality in this one. Really nice.

    Nice look into your soul and how you feel people do or do not view you. The masks that we wear to shield the world are colored so many different ways-each day deems a mask to be chosen and displayed so that the world can not see our souls. I am always judged way before anyone ever knows my name or what I have to say (it is frustrating and somewhat discouraging). Great writing, thanks for sharing it...

    Thank you as always, Mike, for your words of support and encouragement. The gist is simple, we are different people from day to day. No one stays the same. You're interpretation is as good as the words I wrote (if not better)! Thanks again! : )

    We all wear masks to control what we reveal to the world around us. As you say, "you never know which face you'll see." Which masks reveal the truth? They all do. And none of them do.

    This is truly beautiful, Becca. I will return later and read it again.

    We are all and everything during our life. And if not, we haven't grown up.
