Masked

What is this feeling This feeling deep down in my soul Eating away at me Threatening to tear away my flesh And unmask me as someone completely different Than who I pretend to be When you’re constantly worried About being exposed As someone who you think no one will like You can’t focus on who you really are Life is no fun When you are not letting your true self out If you constantly hold yourself back Hiding from the world Pretending to be tough Pretending to be a person Who is not bothered by their words So let your hair down Be the person you want to be Who cares if they don’t like you You are worthy of their love If they can’t see that They’re blind Let yourself cry Let yourself feel the feelings that you always denied Let yourself be who you want to be Don’t be the person you think they will like Be the person you will like
