[447] The Potential In You

I mask a mask of ⁣survival that has ⁣overstayed its welcome like⁣drizzle after a storm⁣⁣The mask is a shapeshifter⁣an excuse spitter, so naturally⁣it dreads questions that reveal⁣its truest nature, so I dare ask⁣⁣What do you fear to admit?⁣How deep is your survivors' guilt?⁣What disappointments do you hide?⁣What memory do you block through denial?⁣Does grief stop [...]
