There’s a girl who wears mask not only to hide herself but to make everyone happy.
She wishes everyone to smile because she knows how it feels to be sad.
Behind her smile, there are tears. Behind her laugh, there is weeping.
She laughs and smiles, as much as she is crying inside.
She is used to wearing the mask and now she is afraid to take it off.
She looks in the mirror with her mask on but she knows what’s behind.
Countless tears under the mask, it became glue to the face.
It seems like people disappear when she’s ready to take off the mask.
Crowd calls in her face and wonders why she only smile.
Only few knows what’s within.
How can someone get used to such thing?
Balloon doesn’t pop if you untie the knot.
She has a mask but she’s not a clown.
She is laughing but she’s not a joke.
She’s sustaining but she’s not strong.
Only thing that keeps her mask on is the dried tears under the mask…
