Mask

Hiding behind this mask is frustrating, but still-I lose myself in this crowd of drones

Similar styles, faces, bodies, and skin are drowning in a sea of clones

I wander along the edge, sickened with myself for not joining the jamboree

To be alike and not worry over differences, where everyone shows similarity

Feeling that sense of warm security

Feeling like you belong finally

Confidence is at last mine to have

 

My self-confidence is nonexistent

Lost at birth, never to be found intact

I dive into the crowd for that sole intent

Never knowing society’s deprecating contract

A part of me died selling my soul that lacked

 

What kind of existence do we live?

Just a secure and self-convenient state of living

But are you serious-are you kidding?

Pressure and stress converge and scheme

Creating only false illusions

False idols stuck in a delusion

Slowly, slowly rotting into dissolution

 

My self-confidence is nonexistent

Lost at birth, never to be found intact

I dive into the crowd for that sole intent

Never knowing society’s deprecating contract

A part of me died selling my soul that lacked

 

It existed once…my self-confidence

It was unhealthy living this life that way

It was suicidal but I dived anyway

The allure was too much

It was too much

But you saved me, my personal lifeguard

Thank you
