She Hides Her Face – Sympathy Poems

She hides her face
when shes not alone
she wears a mask,
but its not her own

It’s everyone else
she wants to be
Be just like them
supposedly free

Free from the troubles
the troubles of life
free from sin
and worries and strife

But when night time falls
and she climbs into bed
her mask falls apart
and her heart fills with dread

She screams and she cries
but no one can here
she wants them to know
know all her fear

Her fear of facing
a world with no mask
afraid they wont like her
afraid they wont ask

So she waits for the day
with hope in her heart
when she’ll wear her own face
and make her new start
