Turn The Screw - Poem by david dean anderson

Turn the screw.
Turn it hard turn it true.
Look at me look at you.
If you really look at yourself,
What do you see? Is it you? Is it me?

So many masks, some you hide,
some you see, which mask is right?
Which is you, which is me?

Turn the screw, turn it hard turn it true.
Look in the mirror, look at yourself,
And be true.
If you like what you see turn away.
If you don’t will you live to see
Another day?

So many masks, some you hide,
some you see, which mask is right?
Which are you, which is me?

You can change your hair.
You can change your face.
Only when you are ok with yourself,
you will get out of this place.
