My Mask

I pace forth and back
All I hear are the things I lack
I cover my ears
My face stained with tears
I hold it in the best I can
From it I have always ran
A fake smile every day
And I pretend I dont car what they say
They act like I dont know mt own flaws
They keep at it like its a noble cause
I hide behind my mask
But its a tiresome task
Shattered is mt mental state
Forever it shall be mt fate

I like the emotion in this poem. This poem has alot of truth in it. Its funny how when something happens we tend to put this persona that we're okay and we fake what's happening to us. Instead of embracing on what happened and realizing that we don't have it all. Great message. Suggestion their we're a few misspelled words. Other than that Great job!!

I really like this.

It is descriptive, powerful, even thought it may be short.

You are an amazing writer, I love you're poetry. (:

This is such a wonderfully written poem!  I love the perspective it was written in and the feeling behind it.  I think this poem is applicable especially to life today. Great work!
