Just Like Me

I was never aware

That I was not the only one

Suffocating behind the contstraints

Of a mask of my own making.

That other people are in pain

Just as I am.

Trying to get along in life

Just like me.


I didn't notice

Not once

That everyone I love

Has something truly dark to hide

Things that even I don't want to see

Just like me.

They are so depressed with their life

That they may contemplate suicide

Just as I am.
