One Face

In the back of my mind
I've dreaded one time
Only one face
Fills me with fear

When I was a child
This one face
Hurt me so bad
I tried to commit suicide

But, no one could see
What was there to see
Underneath it all
Behind the mask

Maybe I was paranoid
Maybe I was irrational
But, as I grew up
The face was still there

What an angst child became
That face just smiled
Its mission was complete
The child of myself was murdered

In the back of my mind
I've dreaded one time
Only one face
Fills me with fear

Its identity is you
