Eternal Halloween

-

It's a great pain for me

To hide behind these masks

Unable to show my true self

For fear of being ridiculed

By all those around me

Who could never understand why

I am the way I am

And why I do as I do

Having never gotten to know me

To see the person I am

But rather shunning me

As though I were but a fly

Who kept on pestering them

And would never give up

Despite their best tries

To get me to go away

But they don't seem to understand

That I am a part of

Each and every one of them

And they will never be without me

Their unabandonable inner-conscience
