We all wear masks, do you see beneath? ~
Is it just the surface that you see
as your eyes gaze upon me?
Can you see past the easy smile,
that hides my abundant trials?
Or do you go deeper where the only truth lays,
the fears, the worries all of what my mind plays.
No, this face is a maze of hidden games,
a mask well used to hiding the flames,
a master you could say from all the times,
of knock downs and pains that have caused steep climbs.
Yet at all hours, when my soul feels tired
and my body, weighted and dragging as if mired,
all you see is this look, so practiced plastered upon my face,
as I reach out, and wish into the vastness of space,
that one day the reflection I'll see,
is a harmony of life going in a different direction for me.
