So true! I love how it is told from the mask's perspective! If I were a mask, I definitely would have those thoughts. These times are so difficult!! -Raven Schewe, age 11

My Mask

I just want to be a good friend.
I'm not here to start a new trend.
I know I'm not the perfect fit.
I know I may irritate you a bit.
I just want a bit of respect
As it's you I'm trying to protect.
I know I can be in your face,
But to discard me is a total disgrace.
I know I'm new to your life,
But I'm here to relieve stress and strife.
I know I don't fit in with your style,
And behind me you always hide your smile.
I know you won't need me for long,
But I still want our bond to be strong.
I want to go everywhere with you
Even if it's just standing in queue.
So trust me, I'm up for this task.
I promise, I'll be a good Mask.
