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, am 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 tongue; so ugly you are 
trying to be someone you are not.
Oh the Alfas, they do not give  (isn't it spelled Alphas?)
a damn 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 ***** thought.
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 get in your way of living  your life, the role
you were meant to play.
