The Mask

We all know someone like this

He puts on a mask, a confident charismatic charade

Every day, that says he’s got it together,that he’s

got it made but if you took even the dull edge of a blade

and cut it away, peeled back the disguise

I can tell you what you’d find, something anyone

can relate to and recognize… a man struggling

with pain, wrestling with his own mind,

He won’t tell you of the many nights he’s cried

Afraid to tell anyone what he’s dealing with

or feeling inside
