Masked

Do you ever get the feeling
That you're a complete fake
When it comes to other people
And the actions that you take?

Like no one ever sees
Exactly who you are
When you're near to others
You couldn't be more far?

Like there's nothing you can do
To show them all the truth
Exactly what's inside
To the depths of your roots

They only get the surface
My mask worn out of habit
I don't know how to take it off
Of how to act without it

My words all have a hollow tone
A falsified ring of sincerity
I wonder if anyone can hear it
The lack of authenticity

Reduced to hide within myself
Cursed by my own design
I can't figure out how to show them
So I'm left locked up inside

I want to stand before everyone
Laid bare for all to see
But how do I go about
Revealing the true me?

I guess for now I'll discover myself
All alone in the dark
But someday I'll step into the light
And open the door to my heart

It was very good. I think we all feel that way inside and you did a great job of portraying that thought.
