I stand there, mask on. 

They see me, but not who

I really am. I'm alone, afraid 

And I have noone. Only me.


I can't take off my mask or

I will be judged for who I

Really am. My mask is apart

Of me. Forever  


Only to show who I want to be.

Even the ones closest to me

Can't see me through the cracks. 

I don't want to be unveiled.
