Time for the Show

Close your eyes

Breathe in and out

Stop your lies

And relinquish your doubts

No one is around

You can wipe off that smile

You can wear that frown

You can rest for a while

There is no one you need to impress

No one to be accepted by

You no longer have to say yes

Alone you can cry

Lay down and rest

You can stop your pretending

Your strive to be the best

And your constant defending

You can be the real you

Away from a world so mean

Away from the world's harsh view

Where everything you do is seen

But it is time to rise

It is time for the show

To put on your disguise

And be the person we all know.
