She Removes The Mask She Wears

She removes the mask that to the world she wears
Behind which she hides all her cares
For she fears the judgmental stares
Should she be seen as weak
And falling away are the other faces
She wears in the other places
As she adjusts to fit in the labels spaces
For acceptance is all she does seek

Mother, worker, boss and Friend
She changes the face to suit each end
Different ones for each who on her depend
So all will have no fears
That she cannot keep under control
And fill for them her appointed role
But inside, torn apart is her soul
Shown when removed is her faces by bubbling tears…
