CHOOSE YOUR MASK


wherever we go
we take us with us 

we choose our masks to protect our inner tremors
sometimes it’s ignorance
often it’s fear
occasionally, it’s loneliness 
all masks
we all wear them, why are we afraid?

wherever we go
we take our fears along
we choose our masks to protect the inner raw
that which we allow no one to see or touch
sometimes it’s hunger
at times, it’s shame
occasionally, it’s rage
all masks
we all wear them, why are we afraid?

wherever we go
our “real” is hidden
our “truth” is disguised
our “authentic” unexposed
our “shield” in place
what would happen if we took off our masks?


What masks do you wear? What are you hiding? Why?
