Unmask All The Masks

Unmask All The Masks short poem

Photo by Alistair Israel

So many masks people have
On their faces,
Even I do not know, which is my real face

Recently, I wrote a poem
On ‘Hypocrisy’
However, when I looked in
I found myself too, a hypocrite

Sometimes I keep a mask of purity,
Sometimes of compassion,
And sometimes of love
And another moment
I become cruel,
I put a mask of impurity,
I see impurity outside which means
Still, one impure person resides in me
And on the next moment
I again put the mask of purity
I hate someone with no reason

No one knows who is who
Everyone has so many masks that
They have forgotten their real faces
The face, which a child has
The face with which God has sent us
The same face we also have
However, there is God
Behind all the masks
There is divinity
Behind all the faces
Unmask all the masks
As he alone is the real hero
Who removes all the masks
And express his godhood

The mysterious rival: suffering of resignation. I am reading myself for the surrealism of life, juxtaposition of love and hate. Another blast went off. White rose and black rose in the same garland; ruins of truth were older than lies.
