    Mask

    You can cover your face
    and try to hide, but what’s
    inside does not lie

    You can pretend that you
    are really great and know
    just what to do any time
    any place

    But your eyes you can’t
    escape, they hold the truth
    there your souls mate

    You can fix up the outside
    to be very special and
    unique, but soon the wrapping
    unravels, showing really
    what’s inside and distinct

    You see beauty comes from
    within, and even if you lie
    the truth transcends

    You see no matter how you
    play the game, disguising the
    contents within, it will be
    revealed my friend,

    So don’t hesitate to be real
    not fake, because the truth seeps
    out like an open gate. All a person
    has to do is wait.

    I love that because right now i'm going through this thing where i don't know who i am and i'm afraid that if i be myself that people may judge me differently or may not like me at all but this has helped me to see that beauty is on the inside if they don't like me for who i am then forget them i can no longer hide who i am

    WORD UP!

    Unque One,

    Thank you so much for your comments, you are so right you just discovered the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

    Never compromise who you are for others, a true friend or any person that needs to be in your world will except you for you and love you for the unique and special person that God has made you to be... You are one of a kind and trust me GOD knew what he was doing, so be who you were destined to be YOU if people can't get to that then you are not missing anything, at least anything that is real......

    Blessings in your house
