The Mask

I’m clever with my mask

I can put it up in an instant

What ever the occasion

I have one to use.

It’s such a habit now

I sometimes forget that

It is a mask

And I mistake it for me.

That’s why finding me

Is so hard to do

That’s why others

Cannot find me either.

  1. True and applicable to nearly every single one of us. We become so accustomed to trying out and wearing masks, that its them, rather than the person beneath, that starts to define us.
