Masks

Everyone wears a mask.
The difference between the masks is not the reason for the mask,
It is the thickness of the mask.
How much do you truly want to hide?
Some masks are immensely thick, but have giant cracks in them.
This is where you tried to remove your mask and show someone your true self,
But they didn’t want to see your actual face.
So you desperately glued the mask back on your face,
Breaking parts of it off in the rush to conceal your tears.
What you didn’t realize is that now
Your face resembles the mask.
You turn into the person you pretend to be.
