Final Masquerade

Hiding behind a façade,

Of artificial smiles,

Understanding eyes,

Changing myself drastically.

I’m sick of this feeling

Of altering my thoughts,

But I cannot gather courage,

To rip of my mask.

No!

I shall not wear this mask anymore!

I shall show my true face!

I’ll be the best I can be!

An this will be my final masquerade!

No!

I won’t pretend!

I won’t flatter the world anymore!

I shall be who I want to be!

And this will be my final masquerade!
