People`s Masks... Poem by Ekaterina Polischuk

What can I do to see your face?
A lot of people stay in space,
Each has his own awful mask,
For me to see it easy task.

A mask of pain is by heart,
It`s sad, ruthless and even smart.
A mask of loneliness and fear,
Its moans, crying you can hear.

A mask of pride you have on eyes
And thinks I can`t you recognize.
A weak and gentle people`s mind
Under the mask I always find.

A mask of untruth and the lie,
You think you happiness will bye,
But have a poor, poor thought.
The life today you nothing taught.

A mask of smile, insincere hug
Like play of feelings our tug.
You can release your soul out,
But it flies lonely in a cloud.

I see a lot of people masks,
My soul truth from you just asks,
But when I look into your eyes,
You mask of hope always cries.

I want to make you take them off,
To live and keep your smile in corf,
To see the word and warm your heart,
To play on stage your own part.

    Yup! people always wear 24 masks each day, Yes with boom of technology, natural life has petered out... Now life is mere shadow, it's a life of a widow sitting window sill cry always for her lost husband. Bang, bang bang boy bag your life now.

    But when I look into your eyes,
    You mask of hope always cries.

    Human life is one big tragedy! I love your poems with heart and soul.... (Report) Reply
