Its easy to put on a mask

to put up a front

to hide our true identity

to pretend we are all put together

to attempt to be perfect

but none of us are

my heart is broken

most people don’t see it

in fact, few do

I wish we could all be real

raw and untainted

I wish anxiety didn’t exist

I wish depression didn’t follow me around

only one person can take the masks off

that person has also

in all probability

been the only one to die for you

take a moment to peek from being the mask

to realize the reckless love he has lavished on you

to take the mask off

to live . . .

in freedom

free from the fake life

free to live original

free to live as who we really are

a new creation

loved by the creator
