The Masks

She stands in front of the shelves
They all glare back
Popular, Lonely, Happy, Depressed
Which one today?

Since no one would accept her feelings
She decided adopt different feelings everyday
But not one are her own

Mama doesn't want to hear it
Daddy stays still
Friends don't believe her
Brothers discard it

If only just once someone would listen
And not say anything
Just accept her feelings

But no,
That doesn't exist
So she keeps them bundled inside
And they're growing larger each day
She knows she'll explode
But until then,
She'll wear Happy for today
