The Mask

ID-10081927

I wear the mask.

I never wanted this mask,

but I put it on every day.

The mask makes them comfortable.

God forbid if they see my true pain.

At home I take it off.

The tears fall freely.

I put it on again for the world.

Somehow it doesn’t seem fair,

when I am the one who is hurting.
