mirroring masks

Blank facial expressions
exhausted muscles
drooping eyes
overworked and over-stressed

Fantasizing over the 'what-ifs'
and the I wishes,
trying to cover the 'I-ams'

Being yourself vs. Being who you wish you were

Molding yourself into fantasy expectations

Never knowing if you're doing it for them,
or for yourself
