An outward image projected,
A mask to hide the flaws.
Traits carefully selected,
To follow social laws.

A façade of a smile, 
A pretense of perfection.
A disguise of hate and bile,
An ever spreading infection.

We stumble onwards blind,
To what people have to hide.
We are all one of a kind,
But to our image we are tied.

What if the world forgot, 
Even for the day.
Would it hurt or not?
To put the mask away.
