Poem: The Mask

Be true to yourself.  Trust me.  It’ll make you feel better.

The Mask

The mask I wear today is not the being I am inside.
My mask may hide my darkest secrets,
But I do not hide my truth.
That truth can easily be seen if one knows how to look.

They teach you to wear a mask when entering the world.
They forget a simple note:
Everything will break with too much use.

Do not hide behind a mask;
You only hide yourself.

Normal is just a word in fiction, not the real truth.
