They say masks are just for masquerade ball;

Feathered, coloured , And encrusted with jewels.

But the most common mask in reality is skin;

Foundation soaked deep into our pores and lips stained from cheap gin.

Scrubbing and scrubbing at our reflection;

But we cannot erase our complexion.

Our flaws lie beneath the mask , covered up and buried in black.

Changing everything about ourselves until it is only personality we lack.

A symmetrical face, skinny, and tall ,

Long blonde hair, latest clothes , why does this matter at all ?

Take off the real mask, don’t let it be your downfall ! .
