“The Mask”

No one knows the true way I feel.
On the inside I’m a child;
shy and naive.

I’m self-conscious and sad,
unhappy with who I am.

Wanting to be different,
praying to change,
losing my self esteem with each hard hit.

But no one knows this.
I put on a happy face and pretend.

No one feels my pain.
No one.
But Him.

He knows just how I feel.
He felt it himself, for me.
He loves me unconditionally.

I am taking the mask off.

It’s real now. I am happy.
