I choose the most dramatic words to say
my life has been one long play
no matter what I feel inside
bring down the curtain
I want to hide.

A clown’s face here, you might see
or heroine in Greek tragedy
I’ll play this part until I’ve died.
bring down the curtain
I have to hide.

I do not seek applause or praise
nor accolades for my plays
nothing left, no shred of pride
bring down the curtain
I need to hide.

I found this in the 'archives'...thought it deserved to be 'brought forward' and not 'hide'. :-)
