The Smiling Mask

This mask I wear, hides the truth of what lays beneath.

This smiling mask I wear
Upon my face for you all to see
Hides the anguish beneath
And the swelling tears in my eyes

When I look in the mirror
It's not the one you see before you
But the real face beneath
And that truly scares me

The harsh cold that surrounds me
Of loneliness and that sense of fear
Fills my mind with bad thoughts
Of pain and suffering I've endured

This path I find myself walking
Distant and cruel with each step took
This fragile and ugly skin I wear
Beaten and bruised from years of torture

I long for it all to end
That day when the pain will go away
All that will be left in my wake
Is the dust of my remains that fade away
