Masked

Location

Mirror mirror on the wall

Do you see me thin and tall?

School is rough, the kids don't see

The person I'm truly destined to be

I try and smile or force a laugh

All behind a face that's masked

I'm petrified of what's become

Because I'm not so sure of what's to come

Returning home is hard for me

I remove the mask for myself to see

I'm not sure how I got this way

No one asked, no one can say

When I break back down

The mask returns

My feelings lost

My heart, it burns!

The fire roars, lounder and stronger

This mask, I can't wear for any longer.
