Remove your mask

March 12, 2019


What lies beneath your hardened mask?

Is it secrets hidden, from a darkened past?

Slowly evolving throughout the night,

your crimson coat so rich and bright.

Fold away your armour, not just for me,

it camouflages your loving, for all to see.

Reveal your heart, with sensitivity,

then your mask will fade into eternity.

Renewed strength and creativity shine,

as a facade discards, for the final time.

It pleases one; it pleasures all,

once renewed, you stand up tall.

Give back to those from whom you take,

Make good your life, for your own sake.
