Mask short poem

Photo by Kat_Sexagesima

Mask is a object worn on face
People use ‘coz they want themselves to be efface
Mask is used for protection and disguise
It usually give mortals a surprise

A masked face is what people see
And it is who you should not be
You forget yourself when you wear a mask
“Who am I”? And you ask

Are you afraid to show yourself?
Are you afraid to find yourself?
Are you afraid to what people will think?
Are you afraid they’re gonna make you shrink?

A bit of courage is all that is required to unmask yourself
Careless of the people who judge your real self
‘Coz the person behind the mask is anew
And that person is you.
