THE MASK WE WEAR

The mask we wear to hide the pain

The pain that tears us up inside

The pain that makes the simple tasks unbearable

The pains of love

The pains of loss

The pains of family

The pains

We hide these pains with the mask of a smile

We hide these pains with the mask of a joke

The mask we wear prevents others from consoling us, being there for us, Loving us

The mask we wear that gives the impression that all is well. Leaving us with issues that are never dealt with, leaving a wound untreated, leaving a soul crying

The mask saves us

The mask protects us

The mask is a blessing

The mask is a curse
