Watching life from the sidelines
Everyone laughing and smiling
Watching football games with mates
or having dinner with friends
Everyone putting on a mask
to hide their realities.
I learned about masks long ago
how it can save, protect, and make one
feel included in the masses.
But lately the mask has been torn
and it's getting harder to wear
Who am I trying to fool, and
Who am I trying to hide from?
Myself? Or them?
