I wear many masks

I wear many masks
To hide from the world
The parts of me
Too wounded to show
The face of the unspeakable
Broken pieces
One mask to take the pain
One mask to bear witness to the shame
One mask to fall apart
One mask to rise again
One mask to hold the anger
One mask to feel the fear
One mask to give protection
One mask to hold them dear
One mask to seek the light
One mask to live in the night
One mask to reach for love
One mask to seek answers from above
One mask to know the past
One mask to want to live
One mask to search for kindness
One mask to offer hope
A mask for every occasion
We wear our masks to hide the things we do not want others to see
But underneath the masks we are simply trying to be free
