Path Toward The Stars

I hear the laughter coming from behind me.
I feel staring eyes
etching holes in my shield.

I stand before you
appearing confident and proud.

When in reality, I want to hide behind
a shroud.

No matter how high the wall is built,
Someone tries to penetrate.

What do you hope to find
when you break through?

What I see in the mirror
reminds me too much of you.

I face each day.
Trying to be free.

Finding my place in this world;
A place to be me.

I must smash the mask.
Strip away the desguise.
Be strong for myself
and also be wise.

My children must know
I wish for them, this:
May you grow up to
know your own simple bliss.

Don’t worry about those who laugh, jeer, or scorn.
Make your own path
toward the stars
blaze on until the morn!
