What Mask Do You Wear ?

Poetry By: KiaraGooden
True confessions

We tend to cover up our feelings that we aren't sure about confessing.

What Mask Do You Wear ?

To mask is to hide or conceal.

What is it that we need to reveal?

The mask I wear is a simple

smile. To cover the pain that

can go for thousands of miles.

The pain of this world we have

no control over.

The pain in my hear that

makes me want to roll over.

Tossing and turning at

night. Its light trying to

sleep in the light.

I cover the pain with a

beautiful smile. Making those

around me believe there is

nothing at all. Nothing

so bad that I can't move forward,

but nobody knows what the inside is showing.

So I ask, what mask do you wear? The

one that can overcome the

pain that is running through your

veins? Maybe its your wealth

or prosperity but just take a look at yourself.

Does it really make you
