The Mask

Posted by Tricia Douglas on June 9, 2010 at 7:21 PM

Pretending to be,

What others expect of me.

Trying my best to fit in,

And others approval win.


Hating what I have become,

Hiding behind this mask I have put on.

Yet so hard to remove,

Knowing others wouldn't approve.


Wanting at times to just run,

Go to where I know no one.

To where I can be free,

And learn to just be me.


But for now I continue to hide,

With a smile to cover what inside.

So no one can ever see,

What has become of me.
