2 (who?)
The masks we wear
To hide our true selves
From those around us

The secrets we will take
To our graves and beyond
Never to be said aloud

The thoughts we had
That could never be shared
Eating us from the inside

Trying to resist the
Things we need to say
But can't ever do

The masks we wear
To hide us from the world
And those we call friends

They'll never know
The things that I've seen
And thought and done

They can't comprehend
The pain of being utterly
Alone in our heads

Thinking, hoping, we can
Try to hide the person
Who we truly are

The masks we wear
To avoid revealing what
We are away from them

The things we do in
The time we have alone
Make us need the mask

Trying to find even the
Tiniest fraction of solitude
Finding privacy only in silence

This is what makes
The masks we wear
All worth it.

Now that's some truth for the masses right there.

Thanks, I think everyone has felt like that at least once in their life.

I did for 3 years.
