I wear a mask

I wear a mask
On days like this
When life is hard
And I have to live
As if all's ok
And I'm coping fine
When actually
I'm falling off the line
So I put it on
And wear all day
No one can see
I don't have to say
How I really feel
I'd be naked then
So I keep on going
Until I'm home again


Linked up at one single impression.

It's good that home can be a safe place to remove the mask!
