unmask thineself

What if I asked,
for you to remove that mask?
I want to see if you're true,
if underneath, it's really you.

And with each turn
of opportunity I have asked
of you to see me and
to quit requiring me to put

my mask back on...
realise, unmasked value:
this is me, and all of who I am;
hopefully that is enough for you.

We are only unmasked when we are born. Then we begin wearing them. Nice piece :)

Masks are very confusing. Please, unmask.
