Why wear the mask? It starts off with covering the face, but soon it covers your heart.
The mask includes a lock and key. The locks for chains. The chains are snakes. They surround their prey and squeeze.
I watch you lie everyday. Avoiding the mirror to hide your shame.
You say you need the fame. That you need those “friends,” minus what they say. Why don’t you see they don’t see your face.
love you for all your grace, so please just hear me say.
One day, when this facade ends, take my hand to find your way.
