“We wear a mask to hide our real identity from the world. This mask depict how shallow we become with the period of time.”
The molding period of an individual’s life is the teenage period, but sometime just to fit in it or to get according to people’s expectations we all try to become someone that we are not.
We have friends, we are liked by people but as soon as we decide to unmask ourselves we start losing them We tend to hide our feelings and emotions and our true identity behind that one single mask.
This prom depicts how a person is waiting for someone who will help them to unmask themselves and become the actual person they are.
I was once sad and lonely,
Having nobody to comfort me.
So I wore a mask that always smiled,
To hide my feelings behind a lie.
Long ago I had many friends ,
With my mask ,I was one of them.
But deep inside,I always felt empty ,
As if I was missing a part of me.
Nobody could hear my cries at night ,
For this I designed my mask to hide the lies.
Nobody could see the pain I was feeling,
For I designed my mask to be laughing.
Behind all the smiles were the tears ,
And behind all the comfort were the fears.
Everything you think you see,
Wasn’t everything to me.
Day by day,I was slowly dying,
But I kept on lying and lying .
There was something Missing,
Until now I am still searching,
the thing that’ll stop my crying,
someone who’ll erase my fears,
the person who’ll wipe my tears
But till then, I’ll keep on smiling,
Hiding behind this mask I am wearing.
Hoping one day I’ll smile,
Till then, I ‘ll be here waiting for a while.
