most days I have to build up the courage to leave my room
as myself and not in disguise
covering up my imperfections
with my mask
that continues to grow
I hide in plain sight from my captors
whom I don't dare to speak to
I felt too much as the burden
the only escape may be
may be too far away

there's always something else is just a coping mechanism
well it's a beauty not to look at
you can't yours unless you are; cuz it's not something you wanna
pretend you are

the first time I bore myself
the shock was over-whelming
I broke down, we broke down
nothing much remained

my mask
couldn't replace the pieces
it's got to go; it's got to go
I can hardly keep it away
