We often wear the masks to hide,
To fit in more, to better survive.
Hide behind the complicated smiles,
Confident, no one would catch our lies.
Nothing seems a bit real now,
Even the shadow now takes a bow.
We lose a trace of who we are,
What the world sees, or what lies afar.
Behind the veil of success and fame,
Are buried desires to dance in the rain,
To laugh when the world tells to smile,
To truly live and not just better survive.
For the facades we pay a heavy price,
Lose our grin for a wry social smile.
If the world is made of you and me,
Can’t we embrace all and spread the glee.
