“MASQUE”

So many people
wear masks and I wonder why.
Is it because
they don’t like what they see,
in the mirror of their soul.

The truth of what they really are
lies within their humanity,
in their natural reality,
not in their shadowed surreality,
the fear of their attempt never to dream.

Hiding only prolongs
the inevitable, the light of day,
as it bleeds from a night
of shooting stars,
just missing the target in your spirit.

Be who you truly are
if you can accomplish one thing in life.
Strive to be the real you,
genuine of facades,
leading to your demise of the soul.
