The masks

We all wear masks and hide a lot inside,
Some are identified, some are tightly tied;

Words tell one story but the eyes, another one,
Smile tries to conceal the tears but it is not done!;

Cunning eyes wink inside the beautiful loving face,
Wicked look hides behind the care not leaving its trace;

Love disguises with hate and hate drapes in affection;
Heart craves for one and very different is the action;

A hand extends to help and a knife kills with the same,
Cheat and win, play unfair that is the rule of the game;

Overconfident looks cover up the poor coward mind,
The boasts of greatness shrouds the inferiority behind;

Slides the mask sometimes and truth shows up fear,
Mask to protect self and a mask to please someone dear;

When the mask is pulled out, the reality will surface
The mystery will reveal itself & the fact fake will face

Masks firm, masks weak, masks try harder to mask,
Verity has power, it will defeat the delusion & bask;

  1. Heyy read the poem really nice dint know u liked them,anyways here something I came across ,


    She had blue skin.
    And so did he.
    He kept it hid
    And so did she.
    They searched for blue
    Their whole life through,
    Then passed right by –
    And never knew.


  2. Nice
    Poem is indication of clarity of thoughts.
    BTW mask is our individuals requirement because we love our eggo more than any thing and eggo needs mask. Everyone is having opportunity to become Buddha but nobody prefers.
    Keep it up!

  3. Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is. As you rightly said, ‘ All wears masks and hide a lot inside’. It’s a bitter truth..! Nice….! Keep posting.
