Facade
Allie, Age 15, Edmonton, AB

                     
When the time comes when I feel
like I should be somebody else,
like who I am does not appeal,

perhaps that's when I'll walk away;
when it's better to stay off the horse
so it won't stray so far each day.

How do I know you'll see into my heart,
if I start all over and recapture myself,
and try my best not to fall apart.

It's time to make myself decide.
Whoever I assume you'd want me to be,
won't grease the grip I have inside.

If I take off the flawless mask,
let you into my anxious mind,
there's just one thing I must ask:

When you dash away, shrieking as you go
don't let me say I told you so.
