I am not happy,
But I still smile,
I am stuck here,
In constant denial.

“Yes, I am fine”,
I smile and say,
I lie to your face,
So you go away.

I hide my face,
Behind this mask,
Keeping the lies,
Is no easy task.

I take it off,
You do not care,
And if I complain,
“Life is not fair”.

Call me a friend,
You do not even try,
Leaving me alone,
Leaving to die.
A lot of my life and my friend's lives...

I can relate to the masks too. It's something I desire to get rid of, yet, something that makes life bearable...Inner conflicts are always the most confusing

Yes, I certainly agree.
Our minds and inner thoughts are quite the enigma, making life slightly harder to understand.
To understand ourselves and sometimes others.
Sadly, putting a mask sometimes DOES help, but I find it the wrong choice.

Sorry for my horrible comparison, but putting a mask on is kind of like drinking, it is trying to get away from your problems in a none direct way, it hurts you, and worst of all, it doesn't actually help you in the long run.

One day you will lose your mask, I am quite positive of it.

:) I think it's close to going. I just hope others can remove theirs also.

I hope so too, and work towards it.
It means a lot when you care about a person,
And trying to remove their masks with them,
Is the best thing you can do~

I really hope you and everyone's masks will go away, one day. ^^

Incredible, I think we all wear masks at some time or another. Whether it's to hide our feelings of guilt, sadness, or even sometimes love. This poem is clear, has good rhythm and is something I can relate to. Thank you so much for saying so well what I have difficulty saying. Hug
