The Masks I Bare

I wear a mask to hide my pain

I wear a mask to hide my shame

If talking was a skill of a mask

It too shall always ask

Why would I need a mask to hide my name?

 

I choose not to speak my name

Or this too will burn in flame

These masks I wear

I dare not share

For it is always a losing game

 

These masks they do so taunt me

As they laugh with soulful glee

My inner war

Is keeping score

It’s like a life draining flea

 

I wear a mask to hide my pain

I wear a mask to hide my shame

If talking was a skill of a mask

It shall always ask

Why don’t I have a mask to hide my name?

The End
