The Perfect Mask

The Perfect Mask

My mirror tells half the story,
A life-like mask hides my glory.
I will not change, so do not ask,
I hide behind the perfect mask.
I put on my daily disguise
To please others I act real wise.
Itís beneath the mask that I bask,
I hide behind the perfect mask.
My inner self will stay the same,
But is society to blame?
Accept me for me, all I ask,
I hide behind the perfect mask.
If I cannot be me, than who?
I do not mean to offend you,
Canít put my feelings in a cask,
I hide behind the perfect mask.
I predict things will never change,
To act proper fits a narrow range.
If unique, youíre taken to task,
I hide behind the perfect mask.
Author's Notes:
This was inspired from a poem by Fleeting-hope on site.  It was entered in her contest called Take a Look.  The challenge was to take one of her poems and write a poem on what it means to you.  Her poem is called "A mask I wear"
I did mine in the Kyrielle form.

I'm not familiar with this form of poetry (Kyrielle) but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
