I Wear A Mask Every Day Of My Life

I Wear A Mask Every Day Of My Life 

I wear a mask every day of my life 
Doesn't everyone?
I, like many of you are trying to get out 
Trapped inside is who you really are.
People are so pent up afraid to smile when out, 
It's as if they are trapped or are afraid to show emotion,
Maybe they think they will be judged 
Maybe if you are nice people will think you are gay
Isn't that ridiculous so we put on a brave face?
Stick out your toungue so ugly you are 
Trying to be someone you are not
Oh the Alfas, they do not give 
a dam about anything,
They think they are tough.
But they are the first ones to fall apart
as they crumble from the inside out
Loving people are the best they have reached new heights
An accomplishment  or task worth your while
They say you come back time and time again
To relive your life until you get it right
What a queer though
Do you think they are right?
I say try to be the loving man you are,
and do not let people who are most likely
messed up waste any of your time
or even getting in your way of living the life the role
You were meant to play
