My daily routine is all about putting some makeup on and dressing up as someone else to be like everyone else.

This kind of "public mask" which I wear every day actually makes it quite easier for me to get acceptance everywhere.

My mask was pretty attractive today as it had too many layers.

Everyone seems to love my mask.

But wait, my "real self"? My real self was suffocating due to these innumerable layers.

It was bawling at me to strip away that "mask" and allow "myself" to finally shine.

And this scream inside my head


I can't listen to it anymore.

I don't want to do this anymore.

Maybe it's time to take the mask off!
