The Girl Behind the Mask

Surrounded by people stands the girl behind the mask,

Her smiling cheerful face,

Always a tiring task,

With her book in one hand,

And her music in the other,

Wanting to slip away,

No one every suspects,

Her true self is hiding at bay.


Sometimes she wonders,

Why can't I be myself,

But she worries,

About showing her natural blunders.


The Girl behind the mask is able to ecscape,

Behind the plastic earbuds,

The music blaring away.


This is why no one knows,

About the girl behind the mask.
