Masks

The mask

I’m clever with my mask
I can put it up in an instant
Whatever the occasion
I have one to use.

It’s such a habit now
I sometimes forget that
It is a mask
And I mistake it for me.

That’s why finding me
Is so hard to do
That’s why others
Cannot find me either.

The unmasking

My hand trembles, jerks
It wants to grab the mask
To raise it up, to hide behind
so others cannot see the pain.

My heart says no, put it down
It wants to be seen, heard
To not be ignored, but be allowed
To come out of hiding.

My mind grapples with all this
It dashes back and forth
This way and that
Seeking logic and finding none.

Maybe, whispers another voice
Maybe there’s another way
Why not just be still, and wait….
And See….
