Take off your mask
Poetry

Take off your mask

Take off your mask when you talk to me
If you’re going to lie, walk right pass me
Sometimes you make it seem like talking to me is such a difficult task
But I am feeding you straight up facts
When you don’t understand something, you don’t even ask
You act like you’re under attack
You put on your mask; you’re scared to show me who you really are
So, you feed me lies
In the back of my mind, I know you weren’t really mine
So why stress it? Why try? I stare at your eyes and they’re blank
I tried to see your true self, but truth you lack
I’m taking my energy back
Tell me when you take off your mask, tell me when you cut off the slack

Hello,
My name is Glory Castillo. I have been writing poetry since a very young age. Being an only child, I needed to find a way to process pain alone. I believe poetry is a form of art, expression and therapy. It helps me cope and it also makes me happy when other people can relate to it. Being in the health care field, gives me a better understanding of how important it is to let your mind relax and your thoughts flow. Poetry is my therapy.
