Truth or Dare (poeTry)

by amica paige

Truth or Dare
Aren't you scared?
What have you had to bear
that you refuse to bare?
You've been warned not to swear
but you didn't stop to care
Now, off--you have to peel
the mask that you wear
and your assumed identity--
you must completely tear!

Are you tugging yet at your hair?
Take a heave!--a breath of fresh air!
--is good, for you really are so rare!
Ignore their glares and stares
So grand really are your wares
when you dare for truth and bare
all that you've had to bear...
Of what should you be scared?
--when, in Truth, nothing's spared.
