Daily Prompt: Mask

Sometimes I hide behind a mask

to get away from who I’m meant

to be.

If only you could see me for who I am and just maybe the mask could go away.

I love who I’ve become and as time goes by, I wish you could love this person too.

Because I’m not going anywhere as I’m who I’m meant to be.

So please accept me without the mask and love me for who I am.

Sometimes I won’t be easy to get along with but I know who I am.

I’m like a star in the night sky, I will always shine bright and guide you home.

So please accept my mask as acknowledgment that I don’t want to hide anymore.
