Survival Masks

Let them fall!

Let your masks fall

Let them dissolve throw them away let yourself unhide

Find yourself deep in the corners of life’s light

Find your face the true face of you

Not the well-developed mask you have adopted

The untruth

Finding you hiding in the rear

Knowing your light has been kept hidden from sight

Not knowing who you are but willing to find yourself

Feeling droplets of courage

Allowing yourself time

The masks put in place long ago,

Survival of life now no longer required,

Throw them off

Throw them away

No longer a need to share.

When you take off a mask you let yourself feel the hidden true you, sitting in the shadows of light.

Waiting and hoping to be seen by you.

This is your essence your true self

It is time to reclaim your true face.
