Hiding Behind the Wall

I see you through your broken mask.
I wonder why you always play the facade.
Do you hide to ignore your pain?
Or do you pretend for the sake of others?

What strength it must take.
What energy you exert.
If only they could see.
Please don't be who they want you to be.

Strip back the layers if you must.
Work through them to your core.
You don't have to pretend.
When you can offer so much more.

I empathise with you.
I feel your energy.
Know that you are loved.
Know that you have a true friend.

Don't let the world crumble over you.
Belief is the key.
One day you will be free.
Just open yourself and trust.
