this piece is written for all those people who mask their true selves. for those who are false. for those who are forced into being deceitful, treacherous liars. for those who look into their mirrors every day of their lives for reassurance. and lastly, for those who force happiness onto the face of a soul filled with sorrow. for all those who fit the above... this is for you.

Of Masks and Mirrors

This is not the life you lead
I know you're not being true
Forcing something upon yourself
Is never healthy for you.
For I know what it is you do.
Falseness and lies will not hold out for long
The Mirror alone will not keep you strong.
The Mask you wear will kill you inside
Until all that is left is dead and dry
The life you force will drain your happiness
Until all that is left are deceit and lies.
Look into your mirror for answers
See what has changed
And underneath the playful banter
You begin to feel estranged.
Put your false life on a pedestal
For all to see and praise
And with the truth locked away in a music box
Who will have hell to raise?

  I loved this line,

"And with the truth locked away in a music box"

It's just so beautiful in imagery. Most people would say locked in a box, but you described the box, which made you're piece a little more unique:)

Nice job,
