This Mask

i wear this mask to hide from you
what it is i really feel
this mask will show you happiness
and eyes lit up with joy
but behind this mask is the true sorrow
and darkness all around

i wear this mask so you cannot see
that what happened is killing me
for i no more live in a world of dreams
where older kids can still be young
but rather in a world of hurt
where smiles are hard to find

so to keep the worry from your heart
i'll place this mask upon my face
and only take it off at the darkest hour
when no one will see
so no one will know
that what happened is killing me
