masks down

We all wear masks,

some with makeup

some with smiles

some with wives or husbands

cars or clothes

we hide from the world

and from ourselves

we hide from our truths

behind our eyes

running always from our real

but somewhere there

where truth meets courage

we are waiting to be found

waiting to stand to the world

masks down

and say loudly and boldly

this is us

this is our truth

this is everything real about me

and when that day comes

if it is true

we will begin our lives again

the way they were intended

when the world first

saw our face
