The Mask

They believe they know who I truly am,
What I aim and aspire to become.
They pry my closed shell open like a clam,
Only exposing how I am lonesome.
Every single day I put on this mask.
It’s a big show I put on and none know.
Come, take a seat, and in my sorrow bask.
Rush though, at two-fifteen the curtains close.
One day I’ll break free from my binding.
They’ll be shocked and won’t know me anymore.
They’ll finally see me honestly smiling.
You know, the smile you’ve never seen before.
I have finally found myself today.
I released it all, threw that mask away.
