why the mask?

Slit my throat open, I wouldn’t mind
But why the mask that shines so bright
You smiled at me and made me pour my feelings
Just so that you could go and spill out at gatherings
Why the mask that shows you are a good being
How I wish they knew your honey-like speaking
Why the mask that hid the betrayer
Why did I trust you and not know your behavior
When you first came you knew not a single soul
I stood by your side with no goal at all
Little did I know about your mean spirit
If I knew, I wouldn’t be in your presence even a minute
Why the mask my friend, why don’t you mature
Your mask will fall out one day I’m sure
I’ll pray for you to be guided on time
I wonder in life how else you will climb
