Always with a mask
never able to show me
Forever trapped

Why must I always hide
Never able to show what's
Inside, I'm alone

The real me is sad
The real me is depressed
and at times angry

But I cannot show,
I cannot tell how I feel
For others will judge

So forever on
I will wear this mask of shame
Don't look behind the mask.
