Mask

Why wear a mask
Put on a facade
When we have
A core of goodness within?

Its difficult to wear,
Impossible to remove
Ugly to perceive
So why do we persist with the
mask over our lives?

And sometimes this mask we wear takes over and permanently disguises the "goodness" within! Thought-provoking words Jyo!

"It's difficult to wear,
Impossible to remove"

Loved these lines. Unfortunately for some, it's as easy to wear as it is to remove. I have a feeling it's harder for you, and for that, I am so proud...

I am struck by the line "Ugly to perceive". It is a very interesting way of putting it. I am interested in how you decided to pull this line together in this context.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting. Look forward to seeing you again.

We are born with these masks...we spend our entire lives learning how to wear them, and only later, much later, do we try to deconstruct them...a difficult task

Good question. Sometimes people do all kinds of things that don't make much sense, oftentimes out of fear . . . .
