Time to remove the mask.
Let the “real” you shine through
No matter how scared you may be
Let the world know what is true
Because what was known before
Does not compare with that which you hid for years.
Reveal the windows to your soul
Let them see. Spill those sacred tears.
It is not as bad as you think
They will not scream and run away.
You are beautiful, your face radiates.
The night has ended. It is the dawning of a new day
Conquer your fears. Shout out in defiance!
Throw it! Smash your mask on the ground.
It was hurtful, terrifying, and frightful
And even scarier when the mask frowned.
No more hiding, little one
Come forth; out into the daylight
Unmask yourself. Put yourself on display
Let the world see your beauty shining bright!

  1. SMASH THE MASK. The words and the poem in whole sounds oh so seductive.
