Masks


The masks of life
are not seen with eyes
but with hearts
some masks like,

The mask of fear
someone is scared
so they act all tough
when they are truly afriad

The mask of sadness
something has made them sad
so they put on a smile
while they cry inside

The mask of deception
they think it is cool to decive those who care
they think they get respect
but in the end they lose those who care

The mask of silence
a person remains quiet
while their spirit wants to shout
but no-one is near to listen

The mask of love
a gentle soul who is looking for love
is treated like dirt
so he keep searching for his true love

all of these masks I wear or have worn

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
