MASKS

I’ve always fancied masks.  More so now that there are a number of designs available in common malls.  Too bad though that I don’t have funds to start my collection.  Anyway, I read somewhere a certain Mask poem that I wasn’t able to memorize or grab the author of.  So I’m searching for it over the internet.  Still haven’t found it, but I read one poem that I’d like to share.  Here goes:

The Mask

Ollie Lind

“What is that?” I hear you say,
as if you didn’t know.
It’s with me every waking step,
everywhere I go.

It keeps me free from other’s gaze,
shelters me from harm.
With it’s help I solve the maze,
no panic, only calm.

Yet wearing it, I live a lie,
my certainty it shatters.
If you believe that honesty
is all that really matters.

To be myself is what I need,
my fear takes me to task.
Why can’t I simply be as me,
and live without my mask?
