I still believe in Fairies

WE WEAR THE MASK….


WE WEAR THE MASK…

THAT GRINS AND LIES…
IT HIDES OUR CHEEKS…
AND SHADES OUR EYES….
THIS DEBT WE PAY TO
HUMAN GUILE
WITH TORN AND BLEEDING
HEARTS..
WE SMILE…
WHY SHOULD THE WORLD
BE OVERWISE…
IN COUNTING ALL OUR
TEARS ..
NAY. LET THEY ONLY SEE
ME WEARING THE MASK…
WE SMILE BUT IN OUR HEARTS…
WE CRY..
WE SING BUT THE CLAY IS
VILE…
BENEATH OUR FEET…
AND LONG THE MILE…
BUT LET THE WORLD…
DREAM OTHERWISE…
WE WEARING OUR MASK!
