A child's masquerade
Every day we encounter a different situation which leaves a mark
Singing the high notes and head held high
Even though deep inside we are beside ourselves
Many faces we show to those around us
As darkness surrounds us we fear to show the true one
For fear enhances the darkness
As the music plays, we try to overcome
But many just dance comfortable in the face they have on
As I reach for you, you shy away
I stand still as the music plays
Realizing I cannot help you no more
For one day you yourself will face the music
In the true self you are
Then and only then will you stop playing the dance of the masquerade.
