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.
