Beneath The Mask

Beneath the mask is a life unknown

But to some life beneath the mask is all they know.

 

The thoughts that spin through their head at night

And the smiles faked in the morning light.

 

Everyone sees the smiles, laughter and grins

When all she wants is for someone to see her sins.

 

Every day the mask disappears more

As the tears begin to pour.

 

When the mask disappears all together

She feels free as a feather.

 

And when her world is exposed for all to see

Everyone else begins to flee.

 

Ashamed she puts the mask back on

And pretends to be someone who is not she.
