We wear a mask to bury our shame,
And sometimes to appear the same.
Each morning we find our dress,
And that mask to cover our awful stress.
We walk amongst our friends and peers,
Dreading the mask won’t hide our fears.
We wear the mask to obscure that pain,
All this pretending is done in vain.
Who is brave enough to shine,
Shun the mask and be authentically fine.
