Picture it and Write: Masks

by joetwo

Hi there. This is my offering for this week’s picture it and write for Ermilia’s blog here. Once again, the picture is not mine, I only use it for inspiration. Anyway Enjoy.


From the beginning of the day
To the end of night
From spring to summer
In youth and in old age
All life, all times
I wear my masks

There are many
One for every occasion
Custom built
One of a kind
Specially for those
From whom things must be hidden

There are masks of smiles
Masks of frowns
Masks of intentions
Masks of words
Masks even of compassionate caring
Masks in the guise of love

In my life I have gathered my masks
I think they protect me
Believe they keep me safe
When reality
The crippling truth
Is hidden behind a mask of it’s own
