True Love

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
James Arthur Baldwin

People so often erect walls to hide the truth from people.  The walls are high and stifling but we feel that we must stay behind them to be safe.  We tell ourselves if you knew the real me you wouldn’t like me.  Or if I open myself up I will get hurt.  To find true love/friendship you must be tired of the walls and ready to remove the masks.  For can one love what you have not shown, and how can one come in when the walls are keeping them out?
