Hide behind a mask, don't let them see you, who you are. Don't you want to be one of them, to fit in? Never let them see your tears, don't ever show your true feelings, for what if they're not normal? What are friends for if not to keep you pretending? So use the mask, make it become your skin, your hide, and after a while it will be permanent. Then doubt will be pointless, you will be a slave of the mask forever. But it will all be worth it, why else would so many do it? What would your life be without your friends that doesn't know who you are behind the mask? Think of what could happen if you don't wear it all the time. What if others threw their masks away? Would you you take the responsibility, or just leave them there so they make even more people drop their masks? What if noone wore their masks, if everybody just were themselves? The world would be filled with the chaos called life. So much tears and sadness, anger and violoence. You say there would also be happiness and love, that the world would be a better place to live in. That the need to destroy wouldn't be so big if people dropped their masks of free will instead of letting the mask get cracked, let the emotions within out instead of waiting until they will tear the mask down in rage and depression. You say that fake smiles never replace happiness, that friends should be your friends not because of how you look, but because of who you are. Then help the others. Do not despise them because of their masks, help them to get rid of them. Let them be free and see the world as it should be. Help them. Please.
