In Search of Self

Location

A mask, a guise

A role to play

Beneath them all

A vast array

Of people, thoughts,

Of all clichés

Another piece

To my display

 

The mind

A treacherous place to be

Of wonders, truths,

A mystery

A smile in place

For all to see

Behind this veil

A tragedy

 

With every tear

Her heart grows strong

And every step

She moves along

Each passing day

Another song

Another story

To add on

 

Although she hides

All that’s inside

The wall she builds

With her disguise

Her story’s not all sad

You see

There’s many treasured memories

 

Her heart, her soul

All locked away

All treasures

For a rainy day

Protected from

The world she stays

Until she finds her home

One day
