We all wear a mask
No matter how we shape or mold it
It stays the same way even with a slight change
For the mask is a part of us
Just as we are part of the mask

When we hide a hidden side
Deep within our hearts
It becomes a shadow
Something we try to deny
Something to forget

But it always comes back to haunt us
Trying to engulf us in its darkness
To show others what their really like
As they keep denying it gets stronger
Shifting and molding into something terrifying

The shadow becomes a beast
A monster of our dark side
Because we've denied it
For thinking it isn't a part of us
But it is a part of us
Like we are a part of it

The only way to combat it
Is to accept it as it is
For that shadow is you
You are the shadow
Your persona that is in your heart

Don't be afraid
Just face it
Show no fear
Accept it

The shadow is you
You are the shadow
You wear the mask
Wearing the mark
On your heart

Once you accept it
It becomes a great ally
A powerful persona
Right by your side
Always there to help you
When things get tough

Most important of all
Never forget the friends
That help you through
The hard times you face
For they will help you

They are the light in your darkness
A shining glow at the end of the tunnel
A hand extended out to grab you
If you are to fall
They will be there for you

We must learn to accept ourselves
For who we are
Hiding our other selves
Will just make problems grow

Just be yourself
Be proud of who you are
As you wear the mask
Keeping your head up
With full confidence

Your persona is a special one
Never forget that
It is your ally
Your friend
Your other half

Your shadow
Most of all
Your mask
Its your persona
Be proud of it
As it is proud of you
To accept it as it is
This poem is dedicated to our persona-our personality, ourselves and accept our persona and ourselves for who we are.

A deity from Persona 1 and 2 who grants people the power to summon Personas.  He is symbolized as a butterfly and also talks about the "different masks we wear" or some crap like that.  I can literally hear his voice in my head as I read this poem.

I'm more interested in main series Megami Tensei, but I'm wondering if I should try any Persona games.  Persona 1 and possibly the Persona 2 duology are the ones that interest me the most; I don't know if I'd get into Persona 3 and 4, though; I don't feel like Social Links would be something I'd enjoy.

This is a really good poem and you capture the point the games try to get across and the main concept of a persons persona.
The poem doesn't ryhme but who says a poem ever needs to. I also think that you have a good understanding of the concept because of how well to describe the personas and how they effect you. BUt if you are your persona and your persona is you.
Then wouldn't you be picking yourself up and diving yourself technically? Because in a sense a persona is not just a simple mask. It is a strength that is yourself.
Food for thought. Great Poem.
