Masks

Why does no one see it?
The few people who care about me have no idea.

They can't tell that it's a mask.

A mask to hide behind - to hide from whats been done to me.

A mask to keep me safe - safe from those who have hurt before as who will try to in the future.

A mask to keep me sane - to help me forget

I have worn a mask all my life.
I don't know who the real me is.
I don't know if the real me ever existed.
And I don't know if I can ever take my mask off.

I don't know if I want to.
