Every time I go out

Open my eyes and see

I put on my mask

Help, people are watching me.

I’m tired of hiding

Am I controlled by a machine?

For inside a soul is crying out to be seen

A soul that’s outspoken

Strong, amusing and free

Searching so desperately to find the missing key

To unlock the labyrinth that I am trapped in

For so many years in my very own skin

Flowing rivers of thoughts run through my mind

Only to be locked up and left forever behind

I turn around as warm tears fill my eyes

The mask doing well, its work of disguise

For no one shall see

What this mask does to me

I found out that fear glues the mask tighter

Of what I don’t know

But I will find out

I am also a fighter
