“And then when the world never finds you, remember you are the one who was hiding in the first place.” Brigitte Cadena
Hide my face..
Put up the blinds
I won’t let you see
who I am
I refuse to let myself shine
Because I am afraid.
Afraid that if I let you in
to see me with blinds open wide
You will turn and walk away
That is why Why I hide
I will paint on my smile
and hide away my pain
And never risk the sunlight
to blind me again into believing
that it is okay to let myself shine
Would you look at me
and see that I am more or less
than what I claim to be?
Would you take my heart
and love me until I am free?
or hate me for all that you see?
I am almost late for the ball
When midnight strikes
I have to leave before I surely fall
I could show you all that I truly am
and I wish you would open your eyes
and just understand
That I put on this mask
and dance around when I am dying inside
But can’t make a sound
Because If I did
then you would see
just how much I wish
I so wish, I could be free.
Why do people wear a mask or hide who they are? Whoever you are, you are unique and perfectly you.
When will you decide to rip that mask off and throw caution to the wind.
You never know, you might find out that there was no reason to hide in the first place.
Here’s to letting your light shine brightly for all the world to see and love.
