My Many Masks

My smile hides my tears,

My laugh hides my screams,

Life is but a paradox,

And nothing is as it seems.


I find things to be happy,

And things that bring me joy,

But the truth is deep down,

I am just a little boy.


I doubt anyone really knows me,

They just know I exist.

I wish I could just live free,

Without the fear of being dismissed.


But over time I have learned,

To keep these feelings at bay,

Cause everyone around me

Is drowning in their own way.


I wish my people understood me,

I wish they stuck around more,

Part of me doubts if they ever were my people,

Or just human who were bored.

  1. “Part of me doubts if they ever were my people,
    Or just human who were bored.” – that got me. I am wondering the same a lot of times… Did they ever really care or are they just bored.

    Awesome. Keep writing πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

  2. Ok. I have to say this one got under my skin. In a very pleasant way. I’m going through a kind of a thought process of them many masks we wear daily to be accepted. Here is a little exerpt of one text I’ve been writing: “Because you are everything and everywhere. You exist as much as a grain of sand, starlight, gravitation and silent rumble of vacuum of space. Here is where you belong, you have your rights and obligations.Β  As you are born as a free child of the stars but you have nailed your own foot down and chained your spirit to draw a circle eternal. Covered your face with masks so to be accepted by the blinded eyes of your fellow spirits, looping on the same perfect circle.”

      1. Thank you for your encouraging words! Just starting this whole blogging thing and feel a bit lost. But it’s the content that counts in the end I hope. Some sturgling with english also, since not a native, but it’s a learning process and I like it. 😊
