Make Up

 

Put on your make-up,

Create your face,

Make yourself ready

To be seen any place.

Cover those tear stains,

Cover those lines;

Create the illusion

That everything’s fine.

Make your eyes bigger,

Make your lips red,

Disguise that you’re really

Wishing to be dead.

Block out those dark circles,

Make your skin glow,

A vision of health so that

No one will know.

Pretend everything is really okay

By fixing in place that mask.

You know you can do it, pull off the act,

So long as no one dares to ask.
