I've always worn a mask.
It's part of my disguise.
I've worn it for so long.
That I've forgotten who I really am inside.
Everyday's another show.
Another person to entertain.
My mood can change drastically.
So deeply is my disguise ingrained.
But when I lie awake at night.
And finally take off my mask.
I search inside myself.
As I wonder and I ask.
I search for some emotion,
but confusion is all that lies inside.
Though perhaps one day someone will look
and finally see the secrets hidden in my eyes.
