I no longer wish to ware this mask,
In the light and freedom I wish to bask.
I wish to break my newly found mold.
My true self I wish to behold.
I wish to end this happy lie,
Yet I am far too afraid to cry.
I know I am trying in vain,
To escape this indescribable pain.
I don't wish to sit idly on the shelf,
I want to rise and face my true self,
I wish to see things through my old eyes,
The ones not afraid to look to the skies.
I know I have a monumental task,
To finally shed my mask.
