The Mask Can't Hide Everything

©

Published: March 2016

The mask
Can't hide everything.

I stand here smiling at you.
I look so bright from head to shoe,
But what you don't see
Is that I don't feel this free.
I feel like I'm trapped in an endless emotional jail.
My life has been a fail.
I'm losing everything,
And it hurts more than a bee sting.
I might comment "haha" on Facebook,
But I'm really just crying, and you don't care to look.

But as I whine and sob,
It's not really my job
To cry and cry
Until it hurts my eyes
Because there is no reason to cry,
"Oh my, oh my,"
Because when you look at what you do own,
You will hear no more groans.
God have given me so much,
And just by his touch
I am healed.

Every morning like one puts on make up I put on the "I'm fine" mask and wear all day. It fools most people. But not yourself. At the end of the day I get to my bed and cry my heart out. Crying for what? That I don't really know. I just cry and cry until I can cry no more. Inside is a pain, an indescribable pain. Day after day I go on like this, hiding, masking me. I feel so alone. At times I wonder if life is worth living for. Why does pain have to be part of life? Life would be so much easier without pain.
