"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where you'll go." -Dr. Seuss

When I put on this mask,
I become invincible.
Nothing can stop this person.
For I, have become invisible.

It hides me from the world.
No emotions need to be shown.
Oh how I love,
Being unknown.

As I pass them by
Their expressions are all the same.
I’m just another person.
One person they pass. One with no name.

As I place it on my face
My mood begins to change.
This façade I put on
Every single day.

This was originally a homework assignment. The idea of a facade came to mind, and it totally fit my personality. Hope you like it.

Wow, I take that last comment on your other poem back, well part of it anyways, lol. This is now my favorite piece of yours. I can so totally relate to this. At one point in my life this poem completely suited and described me very well. I enjoyed this so much. Thank you for sharing it. :) Brings memories for me. You did a great job connecting with your audience. :))))

I really like this. You can tell that you put a lot of emotion into this. I like the third stanza the best. You're a really good writer.
