No Real Monsters behind this Mask

I remember the time

The time I hid behind my so called curtain of protection

I remember the time

The time that I was too scared to look at my reflection

So scared of who I had become

That all I wanted to do was scream and run

I had turned into something that I had always feared

A monster hiding underneath a mask

I remember the time

The time I thought I was the only one who knew of my dark past

This soon came to an end and did not last

I have finally found a safe place

A place where I could take off my mask and show the real me

This place continues to teach me how to live

It has taught me how to love and give

I remember the time

The time in which I thought I was a monster

I have revealed my true self by taking off this mask

I can finally be me without judgment

At last, at last I have found my home

In which I no longer have to be alone
