I have always warn a mask and been able to lie. I’ve always been good at it. But now I’m starting to believe I’m a terrible actor on this world stage. The reason I think I’m so talented is really because no one cares enough to take the mask off and help me. They all expect me to have the strength to do it myself but when you’re alone you barely have enough strength to take the step to lie so why would I use up everything that I am to slip the mask that I glued to my features off? To show the people the real me? To face what I know I really am? How could I alone have the kind of strength that takes and how could the world expect me to be able to do it without any help?
