These Truths Are Mine

An invention,
A creation,
Nothing to see.
An enigma,
An illusion,
A fantasy.
And nothing
A mystery.

The mask
Behind which I hide;
The smile
Behind which I hide;
The wall
I’ve built and
Behind which I hide.

The truth
That cannot be denied.
These lies are mine;
Yes, this is me.

    1. Yes there is a certain amount of comfort to be gained from wearing a masks, but I think everyone ideally needs someone who they can show their truest self too. Even if it is just being honest with yourself.
