The Mask
By Terry Klasek

The mask that I wear
Is filled with glee,
but it is only hiding
the true side of me.

Oh, how I wish I could
sparkle and shine
Until all my secrets
Were no longer mine.

But as I sit in my pain
Trying hard not to complain
I look to feel worthy
But become lonely once again.

So away with this mask
So I'll no longer wonder,
Which one of these
people truely is me!

  Terry Klasek


"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
