Hardly anybody knows it

I put on a mask

My mask

To hide my true feelings

To keep the emotions in

Because I must be strong

I must be the way society made me

My mask must capture my tears

My mask must cover my insecurities

My mask must always show my smile

My fake and unattractive plastic smile

My mask must hide who I truely am

It creats an identity that I don't want to be

My masquerade mask

Keeps me from my dreams

Keeps me from opening up

Keeps me from love

Keeps me trapped

When I try and pull my mask

It feels super glued

I cannot pull it off

With my mask

It is hard to get someone to help me

I notice people

Not noticing me

Because they think I am smiley

My mask is my worst enemy

I want to show the world

The real me

My mask wants to show the world

That the real me wasn't even born

I am waiting for that special someone to come

And pull it off

Then I can glow

I will shine brighter than the sun

It will be like I was just hatched

The real me

Can have a rebirth

The real me

Will be the one everyone will love

But until then I will sit and wait

Wait for this curse to be broken

Because right now

My mask cages the real me
