Facade - Poem by Caleb Ampadu
I hide behind this mask
I call my facade.
It's showing people the
Happy side of me, but I'm not.
Problems hidden and kept
Inside of me like it's in a cave.
Soon enough it's like a monster,
Inside it's cave about to go
Berserk because it has had enough with darkness
And has put up with every ounce
Of problem with it's life.
It's either it will decide to kill
Itself or to dwell with it's problem
Like a real man it is.
Hiding behind this shield
Of illusion is a boy loving
and caring for his friends.
But friends who were as real
As cold hard plastic. Who's
Trying to manipulate other
People for them, to just have fun.
Yet this boy hiding in this
Facade, left the world, and
The rest, to rust and stardust.
