My Halloween

I HIDE behind the covers in my bed.
I put on masks and PRETEND
to BE something I’m not.
I wish you would do the SAME,
and give HOPE that something real
is LEFT in this world.
You whisper BEHIND closed doors,
BUT when they open what will you say?
When they SLAM shut who will you be?
Will you change to PLEASE them
with what THEY want to hear…
OR will you hide behind the covers,
put on MASKS and pretend
to be something your NOT.
