Letter to a Mask From a Friend
Do you know who you are?
I know you’ve been searching
So near and
You’ve tried on a mask that was covered in black.
It’s face sad and weepy,
It’s face sort of cracked.
You tried on a mask in Chantilly lace,
Although it was beautiful
It wasn’t your face.
How about the one with the pom-poms and bells,
Whenever you’d wear it you’d laugh and you’d yell.
You acted so silly, you acted so strong
But all of the time you were just acting wrong.
My favorite was the one that wore a big grin,
Plastered and white dropping down to your chin.
It giggled, it laughed it had a good time,
But under I knew you were hiding inside.
There’s a secret inside you, deep down within.
Under the mask hides you’re very own grin,
Under that mask hides your very own frown,
Under that mask hides a cool, funny clown,
Under those masks hides wonderful you.
The person I love,
The person I knew,
Take off the mask,
Because once you do I know your coming back.
