Mask

Wear that mask,

Get into character,

Responsibilities call

Buckle up!
Dare not be different,

Difference is flaw.

Heart be damned,

Damned be those,

Weird and misfits?

Equations of loss.
The way you think?

Who cares for that?

How you look ?

Well we can talk about that.
Speak your mind,

But be ‘appropriate.’

Want to live your life?

Oh sure! 

Don’t forget the rules society create. 
Lost yourself already? 

But I told you to be yourself anyway!

Be independent!

You can’t fall.

And if you do better hide it if you want to make it to your goal!
Wrapped in covers on bed you’ll lie,

Cry if you want,

Just be back to work before half past nine.
Your heart will be broken,

Pain will subside,

Stitch it together,

In just anyone you can’t confide.
Humans are selfish creatures you see,

If you find one you better put your best smile

Because they all wear masks,

A true one?

That’s a myth girl,

Myth created to keep this artificial world alive.
