A Beautiful Mask of Smile!


Who has not crossed the bridge of,
Pile of emotions keeps on flickering,
Day and night like the beautiful stars,
Twinkling in the sky, though not visible,
In the bright sunlight!
Like the Mask of beautiful smile,
Covering the painful face.

No one knows whats going inside one's mind.
Like a birdie trapped,
Inside a cage singing painful song.
Loud clapping heard outside for singing.
But inside the cage was a weeping bird.
No one listened her painful cries.

Like a joker in a circus, making the people laugh.
But inside his laughter lies the cries of pain.
As all his days were not pleasant ones.
Yet
He has to make people laugh
Whatever pain he carries with him.

A mask of beautiful smile hides all the pains behind.
Yes its the mask and only mask plays the beautiful roles.

Will I be ever able to unveil the mask?
Yes, a day will come
When I will unveil my mask.
And laugh out loudly
Cry out loudly
Shout out loudly
And live a day only and only for me.

No day is same.
Every day is a new day
As bright as sun!
Which is sure to come in! ! !

    A very pragmatic write, Geetha. Barring a few most of us are actually masking our sorrows and pains under our fabricated smiling face. But if we don't do that, we'd have been died much earlier under the pressure of sorrows.Hence this mask of smile is of immense value to keep us alive.... well done my dear. (Report) Reply

    When a reader starts thinking that this poem is written for me, the poet is certified to be great. As an insignificant reader I certify that you are a great poetess. (Report) Reply

    The first line seems incomplete.
    bridge of, (of what)
    If you want me to run through the second line in accordance with first, I am unable to fulfill the right tense.
    This poem is lovely. The parallels you draw about the caged bird and the joker in the circus are a bit cliche but they work wonderfully well over here. especially the one about the joker. I liked the poem a lot. Thank you (Report) Reply

The other gift were your words that truly touched my heart on my page on this new day at a time when my life has changed and I am fighting sadness BUT I know I can fight it and there are so many who are struggling more.
    Thank you so, so much Geetha and don't ever forget your MASK x (Report) Reply

    Be careful with the mask you wear
    Lest it gets stuck like second skin
    And the pain gets too much to bear
    But fight it out bare and you will win...

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
