The Mask




Wake up in the morning

Put on a mask

Be the person people want you to be

Don't show real emotion

Emotion shows weakness

Pretend everything is ok

Don't tell the truth


Nobody notices the broken girl

Nobody notices the depressed boy

Nobody notices the troubled family

Why are people so oblivious

At some point someone will notice


Its all fake

This world is fake

This is what it has come too

Too hard to change

Don't worry, everything will be fine


Is this really what we want

Do we want fake friends

What is wrong with being real

Why can't we figure it out

    Hard to accept...but very true.

    We are somewhat naturally self-centered. It is hard to put yourself in someone else's shoes, behind their eyes, to feel their experiences. You are asking the right questions.
