The poem is below.



I'm not really happy here 
all I feel is the evil in the air
where lies are spoken 
like it is a gift token
the evil games that are played 
in the Masquerade
it will leave you lonely the next day
where people come around an give blame
for all the evil games they played
I listen to the words they say
I looked around just to see 
all the wild faces looking at me
I searched out for kindness 
but all I found is madness
this isn't a place for me 
I don't feel safe at the Masquerade 
I try so hard to understand what they are saying
they are speaking in a unknown language
it is getting very scary over here
I'm lost in a nightmare of an evil Masquerade
people are changing by the hour
I want to walk away 
but I am too far away
darkness is hovering around the room 
I tried to talk and move along 
just then someone started sing an unknown song
so I danced along while I'm walking on
I'm lost inside this evil Masquerade
where fears and loneliness starts to play it's game
I felt like I wanted to cry 
but someone else was doing it for me
I weep and I dipped on by 
trying to hide the fear I hold in side
the I looked around and found all eyes on me
Oh, how I wanted so bad to disappear
No matter what I do 
I see and feel evil in the room
I know this is the season and the reasons
that they carry on like this
but this to me is a place of sin
something I don't want no part in
I started weeping in deep silence 
at this evil Masquerade
I am feeling so afraid 
and the people are acting very strange
they are getting closer 
and the music is getting louder
I tried to talk it over to the man in the corner
but he was doing lustful things
in this darken dream 
Oh, please help me I started to scream 
thats when everyone stop 
then ask me if I needed a drink
Thats when I smiled and said no thinks
I found the door to my freedom 
I walked out screaming and shouting 
thank god I am alive 
this was a nighmare at the evil Masquerade
everyone was acting strange.
