You Dont Even Know Who I Am

You don't even know who I am.  So why do you care if I go.  Song lyrics that speak to my heart. My family and friends see a mask, one that I am forced to put on everyday.  I am drowing in a sea of make-believe, so deep that it is beginning to eat away at my bones. I confess my heart to them and they smile with disapproving stares.  They take me as I am because i am unique.  

Little do they know that I have just scratched the surface.  I tell everything.  I am an open book.  only if they knew i have not even began to tell the truth.

It seems to be the unfortunate fact with some of us. The masks of the person everyone wants you to be that we have to keep up to keep them happy. But depending on the type of masks you wear only a few get battered protecting you. The others just cover everything real.
