Tired of This Mask

Tired of this mask I wear
I just wish I could be

The person that I really am
for all the world to see

But I am so afraid that
people won’t like the real me

So I go on pretending
living an assumed identity

Of it I don’t know how
it is I can get free

I can’t help but wonder why
this mask has overtaken me

And fear that I am doomed
 to wear it for eternity!

Teresa Marie  9/16/11

For all those who are wearing a mask and pretending to be somebody that you are not, be who God has created you to be and love yourself as He loves you!
