A Mask

A mask is what we wear at times
To hide our own fears and worries of life
Where we appear other than what we are
To make ourselves look and feel better about things;

The mask can be a simple or elaborate one
But it still serves the same primary function of
Hiding our face from the world and the world from our face
So that we can behind our mask feel a little more secure;

Until we are strip bare of our cover
Perhaps we never will ever find truly who we are
Beyond what we present to the world
And maybe someday we will be masked even from ourselves;

Why wear’st thou thy mask?
