The Mask

You take off one mask... and then you were another.

Some are smiling, some frown.

 Which one will you wear today? The meeting mask, the outing mask, the greeting mask, the thinking mask, or maybe the caring one. There are so many of them. So many choices!

Each one has a purpose, and each one has a place.

/A part to play. And play it does. / 

You are brilliant, you are dazzling. You are the winner. Yes there is also a mask for that - the winning face.

And you have to wear it, wear them. Keep wearing them. Maybe you are wearing too many at a time even. Because there isn't always enough time to change.

/They won't come off!/

 Now they are there to stay.

/Stay forever. And you wonder. /

If. If they ever come off.

What will be your real face?



  1. "There is something about yourself that you don't know. Something that you will deny even exists, until it's too late to do anything about it. It's the only reason you get up in the morning. The only reason you suffer the shitty boss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. Fear or revere me, but please, think I'm special. We share an addiction. We're approval junkies. We're all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch. The hip-hip-hoo-rah. Look at the clever boy with the badge, polishing his trophy. Shine on you crazy diamond, because we're just monkeys wrapped in suits, begging for the approval of others." one point a-few.. :)
