I put my mask on.
Time to face the day.
Time to plaster on a smile.
Time to pretend it's okay.

I want to crawl in bed.
Leave the world behind.
You're too ugly to go out,
whispers my mind.

I know I am,
I stifle a cry.
I want to leave,
I want to die.

My mask is done,
and I have to go.
Time to face the people.
Time to put on my show.
I'm actually getting ready for school while I'm writing this. The first line popped into my head while I was doing my eyeliner.

Great way to start the day writing poetry!:) I feel like the tone of this poem can vary (which is a nice change of pace). You can read it as being suicidal or just plain old teenage depression.:)

Well thank you, I do my best to make the topic of my poems flexible so more people can relate to them

Life's too short and the people you see in school these days will be hardly remembered once your real life starts, so make the most of this special time. Enjoy this life and don't let other people affect how you enjoy YOUR life!

The question comes up, why are you masking? Are you masking emotions, making a blank face of 'fine', or are you masking yourself because you think you're ugly, or both?

nice rhymes. ugliness, of course is a prejudice, a fantasy, not a reality. but you already knew that
