M A S K 2


I attach a mask.
People admire me.
Receive a mask.
I attach a mask.
People speak ill of me.
Receive a mask.
I attach a mask.
People ask me for help.
Receive a mask.
I continue attaching a mask.
Until I go into a comfortable place.
Where is a comfortable place?
Is it Heaven?
Or is it hell?
I continue attaching a mask.
