Behind The Mask I Wear

Behind the mask I wear
Is a person I hate to be.
Because nobody ever gets the chance,
To see the real me.

Behind the mask I wear
A coward lay behind,
Afraid of what the world dished out
With no safe place to find.

Behind the mask I wear
A child runs from fear.
The boogey-man’s out to get me
“oh daddy, are you near?”

Behind the mask I wear
Is a drunken sore that’s me
To thirst that drink, it made me think
What a messed up girl, I be.

Behind the mask I wear
Fat clings to my bones.
No one loves me for what they see
don’t call me names, throw stones!

Behind the mask I wear
To look into the mirror,
A child wanders aimlessly
As old age draws nearer.

Behind the mask I wear
A new one’s just been found
A mask that changed my attitude
And turned my life around.

Behind the mask, the new one I wear
A handful of broken dreams made me aware
That life is an abundance of ups and downs
And other options to share.

Behind my new mask, I wear
A chance to succeed
Another chance to start over
And a person someone may need.

I wear my new mask with confidence
With strength, self esteem and a smile
I wear my new mask with love and affection
To go for quite awhile.

The tears I cried were heavy with pain
My new mask took them away
Behind my new mask, I am OUT and proud
With endless voice of say.
