A Poem

I don't think I've posted a poem on here before, but here's one that I wrote a little while back which I actually really like. It's written in a somewhat free form:

Masks and mirrors, hopes and fears
hidden from human sight.
See what's not, know a lot
Fail to see what's real
Illusion rules well, delusion brings hell
Masking makes safe the heart.
Yet safety is dangerous and
danger can kill
And the mirror is already cracked.
Cracked? Yes, and broken too
Likewise my whole world
It hides and warps but
fails to heal, for healing means letting go
Drop the mask, turn the mirror
See reality.
Open up, show yourself
Be as made to be--
