Just A Shadow

A mask

She walks along, alone and unknown
A stranger within this place of stone
Glancing only briefly at faces so cold
Their silent and harsh gazes she cannot hold
Their icy stares pass through her like a knife
As if she doesn’t exist in this life
She continues on with her head hung down so low
Drawing no attention, as if just a shadow
So many in life whose stories remain untold
Striving only to fit into some perfect mold
Like the others she will wear her mask
And in the moment they all will bask
Pretending for a time they are loved and known
Despite that their true selves are never shown
