My faithful mask

My faithful mask
Rate this poem

Surrounded by unknowns,
They cannot see my face.
Beneath my covers,
I hide my inner secrets.
No one knows who I am,
I do not wish to reveal it.
The true self which lies within,
Can never face the world.
For I have so much to hide,
And so little trust in you.

  1. Hey i love your poem i can really relate to it
    most of my friends have no idea who Im
    and i've been friends with them forever
    it's hard but it's life huh well good job

  2. i guess Im not alone in this world. its such a miserable place out there. anyways i am glad am not alone in this world even though at times it feels like it.

  3. I feel exactly the same way.
    God no one knows how i feel.
    I want to tell them, sometimes I even try to tell them, but then i end up never actuall doing it.
    They wouldn’t understand
    Even if they tried
    Keep up the good work
    that’s an amazing poem

    must be that one person in this world thet you can trust
    if not theres always that one person who dying to earn
    your trust, go out and look for them, there us always some1

    travel the world on your own, if it gets to much,don’t hesitate to turn
    to god!
