If I Shed My Mask©

If I Shed My Mask…

Would you even know who I am

You’ve held me each day

Wrapped me in your arms

And kissed me goodnight

But still I wonder

If I Shed My Mask…

Would you look past my scars

Would you love me for me

Would you defend my honor

Or

Would you just say goodbye

And make me cry?

Because a criminal stole my

Beauty

And left me hiding behind a mask

That barely covers my scars

If I Shed My Mask…

My love will remain grounded

I will have no fear

And will live in the clear

For where there is no shame

There is a clear sense of justice

That again makes me whole

And my happiness will prevail once more
