MasksI have a mask that I put onMasks11 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A warriors mask to make me strong
To give me meaning, to hide my pain
To stop me crying in the rain
Apart and separate, look at me
An individual entity
There is no other like to see
My difference gives me will to be
A mask is of generic form
We recognise those it adorns
It is a badge, a uniform
Where is the self when lines are drawn?
In the search to find the self
Pull many masks down off the shelf
Try one on, what do you see?
A mask that trys to cover ME
