Our masks that protect us

Our armor that shields

These walls of comfort

To others just yields


How can they care

If they never see the real you

How can they love

If they never really knew


We hide in fear

Cowering in corners

We beg for understanding

But live like mourners


Some masks heavy

Almost like stone

Others are clear

And loosely sewn


What mask do you carry

Exhaustingly upon your face

How solid is the wall

Around your space


Perhaps it is time to take a peek

At a life without the veil

See what is really out the

Sans the weight, you may just sail


Lift it gently, put it in a box

Give your thanks, say goodbye

Let the world see the real you

And no longer live a lie
