Re: Poems of Mine

Mask

Each day I get up
Get dressed, brush my teeth
Get ready for the day.

But My routine is a little different than most other's
And that's because I do something special
Something I do to make sure I'm 'okay.'

Before I leave
I grab my mask.
This mask, however
Is not like any other mask
You can't see it
You can't touch it
But it's there.

It's a mask of happiness that I wear
To avoid getting pitied
Avoid questions
Avoid people trying to help

I go through the day as any 'normal' person would
Laughing, smiling, being happy
But it's all fake
If you see me smiling, chances are it's fake

Sometimes the mask cracks in the middle of the day
And I have to hurry and fix it before someone notices
And asks me what's wrong

Each night before I go to sleep
I take time and carefully repair my mask
So that no cracks remain
and my true feelings are not revealed

Then I hang it up
Ready for the next day
