A layer of protection
like a layer of gold
but why does it have to be
so fake and so cold.

So many stories
and so many lies
but it just ends with friends
saying goodbyes.

It's so hard to tell
what's true and what's not
it's because of that mask
that I have forgot.

You've built up a wall of safety
a refuge
but how can a lie so little
build up something so huge?

Now, if you please look away
as I hide my face in shame
for I, too, have a mask
that looks just the same.


The author's comments:
This piece was inspired when I was having a hard time with my friends and all I ever heard was a lie or a rumor. I thought: Those people spreading all those rumors are probably really good people on the inside... So why in the world would they hide it? I always judged them for it.. but then I realized that I did the same thing.

Aw. I wear masks too sometimes. And I usually hate doing so. Great poem though... :)))

Wow!  I love the rhyming scheme here and the message in this poem.  Since you used a question mark later on, you might want to put a question mark after 'so fake and so cold'.
