Remove the Mask

Do we even know anyone anymore

Even those closest to us

Or are we just seeing the masks they wear

We know we hold secrets ourselves

So why would we believe that somebody else doesn't

We become so consumed in the lies

Some of us may even believe that this is the real us

But deep inside we know

We know that we are hiding our true desires, our true selves

Why are we so afraid to let the world see who we really are

Let's take off these masks

Break down the walls we've built up

And finally let everyone see us as we truly are

Each of us with our own beauty to share

if more people read this, it may strike a nerve

always be true to yourself-never hide from nobody

great job
