I hope you enjoy my long-lost poem!
Everyone wears a mask,
If you should boldly ask
Some are big and some are loud
Some just laugh at the crowd
Emotions are so much like masks
When we turn our backs,
On the family we love and know,
A new, fun mask comes to show
When we turn our backs on fun-loving friends,
The fun mask's reign comes to an end
The serious mask comes to town
Bold, dark, and sometimes with a frown
Like a wall, it hides,
All secrets, dark and mysterious but it confides,
That we keep those secrets from Mom and Dad
After all, we wouldn't want something bad,
To happen to our lives that we've come to love and know
Who would come to show?
A replacement you?
No one, that's who
So that's why masks are also like safes,
Keeping our precious secrets locked up safe
And anyway, we all wear the mask
