Life Behind The Shadows

You hide behind your secrets,
And the lies that keep you safe
But the mask you put on daily,
Leaves scars upon your face.
And all that makes you beautiful,
Is what keeps them all away
When you need someone to fall to,
They all just melt away.
The life you planned on living,
Is drifting out of reach
Your dreams torn down before you,
Like the hope you try to keep.
But it is only in the dark now,
That you can shine so bright
And while they all were blinded,
You never lost your sight.
With nothing there to guide you,
On a path no eyes can find
But even with nowhere to run to,
You can still out race time.
