1. Masks

I wear a mask, 
nay, 
not one mask, 
but multiple. 

I wear a mask of self confidence
that allows me to walk in public 
and say hello to the passing strangers in the school yard. 

I wear a mask of happiness 
to hide all the tears 
that threaten to flood the entire world
with the pain that I walk with in my chest and on my shoulders every day

I wear a mask of common sense
because I must not have any without it
for I keep falling in love with amazing people
yet I still do the same horrible thing to make them leave. 

I wear a mask of self importance
because I must walk with my head tilting toward the skies

not looking down on anyone, but looking up at what I can be
because without self importance
I am nothing.
