The Masque Worn – Color Rouge

Pain within ne’er show
Secrets kept ne’er share
Acceptance burden carry
Pursue similar versus shun
Dislike living life this manner
Follow different path find happiness.

Parent maternal an agoraphobic
Parent paternal an alcoholic

Talk about a dysfunctional childhood
Time spent parenting my own parents

Rarely compare
Discriminate ne’er

Person wear rouge masque
Undertook huge task

Decipher right from wrong
Education mental health lifelong.
