Behind the Curtain

Peek  

   Around

       The 

          Curtain

And what do you see?



You see a young girl-almost-woman

Crying into her hands.



"They hate me!" she cries. 

"No one loves me!" she cries.



The man in the dark nods and approves.

"It's true." he says.

"There's no lie." he says.

 

The young girl stands up

And wipes the tears from her eyes.

She reaches for the mask

That's beginning to break

And puts on her smile.


"It's true." she says.

"There's no lie." she says.


She watches you pull

                   away from

                        the curtain.

She watches you leave her

With fear in your eyes.

"It's true." she says.

"No one loves me." she cries.
