Removing the Mask


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




About Heather Rayne

I am a mom, wife, writer, volunteer, eater of food, lover of animals and avid TV enthusiast. I am opinionated, honest, compassionate and sensitive. I can also be difficult, hard headed and emotional. I consider myself to have a great sense of humor and am very attracted to that in others. I am striving to live an authentic life. I am attempting to learn how to find happiness in the now. I always have hope to be a better person. That being said - I can be vulgar, negative and even a little bitchy at times. I say what I mean and my filter is often dysfunctional. With me, what you see is what you get. I have strong opinions and am quick to speak my mind. This can cause problems from time to time but I do not ever intend to hurt or offend anyone. With that - be warned. I do hope you enjoy my site. Thanks for visiting and have a swell day.
