Masked Stranger


I'm a lonely, silent stranger
And to myself untrue.
I hide behind a mask, you see,
That no one can unglue.
I sit alone and think at night,
And wish that I could cry;
But my mask will not allow it,
So my eyes are always dry.
I long to share what's underneath
This painful mask of mine-
But everyone that I can trust
Just doesn't have the time.
Alone in this uniqueness
That nobody can see.
Because I hide myself so well,
They cannot hear my plea.
I'll try to struggle on alone-
and yes, I'll get crushed down.
But I will keep on striving,
Until my self is found.
I'll wait till I've succeeded,
And can live without a mask.
Then, I'll help another stranger
Who was too afraid to ask..
