I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn Monroe

A mask hides my pain
Covers all my shame
Disguises my hate
Ignores all the rates

Underneath there is me
That cries for the pain
That blushes from the shame
That lets free my hate

A mask says I'm happy
A mask says I'm pretty
A mask makes a Me
That's a rough sketch of

Underneath I take pills
Wear make-up galore
Cry late at night
And obsess over scars

My Mask is who you see
I dare you
-I want you-
To Yank it OFF
