I was once sad and lonely,

Having nobody to comfort me,

So I wore a mask that always smiled;

To hide my feelings behind a lie.


Before long, I had many friends;

With my mask, I was one of them.

But deep inside, I still felt empty,

Like I was missing a part of me.


Nobody could hear my cries at night

For I designed my mask to hide the lies.

Nobody could see the pain I was feeling

For I designed my mask to be laughing.


Behind all the smiles were the tears

And behind all the comfort were the fears.

Everything you think you see,

Wasn't everything there was to me.


Day by day,

I was slowly dying.

I couldn't go on,

There was something missing..


Until now I'm still searching

For the thing that'll stop my crying.

For someone who'll erase my fears,

For the person who'll wipe my tears.


But till then I'll keep on smiling.

Hiding behind this mask I'm wearing.

Hoping one day I can smile,

Till then, I'll be here.. waiting.

    I know the feeling well. The mask is only a temporary solution though. It’s designed to fool others, so when you’re alone you’re face to face with the truth when you look in the mirror. Best of luck to you finding the solution to your problems. Hell, we’re all searching.
