From Behind The Mask - Poem by Rik Bertrand
I have suffered more than my life can handle,
I am through with the masquerade, the lies.
My body and soul have taken the pain,
And at this time I do not know where my heart resides.
I kneel down and beg for forgiveness, and plead salvation,
It is time relinquish my hidden life and surrender.
Times have changed my emotions and my true devotion,
I can no longer hide behind the mask, and be the great pretender.
The mask has been my protection from the world,
It has hidden the real me from all that is meaningful.
It has held me back from fulfilling my ultimate dream,
From loving life and seeing all that is really beautiful.
I take this mask an lie it down so I can been seen for who I am,
The world will know that I mean no real harm.
I can already feel my life changing, my heart is beating anew,
My heart is growing, my blood Is churning, and I am feeling very warm.
It's time, to come out from behind the mask.
Forgive me; please forgive me, for this is all I ask.
