Mask

by Je
(New Jersey)

There is a mask
people like to put on
because they are -
uncomfortable within

As soon as their
cover gets blown away
they clam up and hide
in their little safe shells

I am one who believes
in being myself
if I am threatened at all
I will just walk away

People can't change
who or what they are
with cosmetic surgery
and wigs and hairpieces

The life of a human
is give so preciously
Be who you are
Accept and love yourself
