Suggestion for GLM

I found a poem by Anonymous that I thought fits the project. I thought maybe it could go in the front of the book or something? If anyone even likes it. Ironically, I found it in my religion textbook, but that's beside the point. Here it is:

Don't Be Fooled By Me

Don't be fooled by me.
Don't be fooled by the masks I wear.

For I wear a thousand masks, and none of them is me.
I give the impression that I am secure.

Confidence is my name and coolness my game.
But don't believe me.

Beneath lies the real me - in confusion and fear and
aloneness.

But I don't tell you this, because I'm afraid to.
I am afraid that you will think less of me,
that you'll laugh at me.

I'm afraid that deep down I'm nothing and I'm no good.

Yet only you can call me into aliveness -
each time you're kind and encouraging,
each time you try to understand because you care.

Who am I? you may wonder.
I am someone you know very well.

I am every man, woman, and child you meet.
