Mask It With A Mask

I wear a mask, thick as leather

 

Beneah the seams fear keeps the mask together

 

 

No scars lie behind this invisible shield

 

A single word is all that's concealed

 

 

Failure has such a negative connotation

 

One who fails is an abomination

 

 

More effort

 

More skill

 

A failure won't be good enough and never will

 

 

We forget that each failure is an attempt

 

An effort

 

We ignore that success does not come without a single mistake

 

 

I will never loosen up the seams of my mask

 

And explain to you my dreams

 

 

For when I don't acomplish a single goal

 

Your love will burn its very last coal

 

 

And I will freeze alone in our trailer

 

Because of the way we learn to hate failure
