Robyn Reynolds is a writer and Year-1 student at BHSEC Cleveland.

Living in hope that maybe if I keep on this mask,
I might grow to be what I pretended to be.
Scared of my own shadow,
So I cower in the light, hoping my darkness doesn’t find me.
But this light can be blinding,
And it’s getting harder to see,
That if I can’t face myself,
Then I’ll never be free.
