poet#22 "Masks"

Many of us are masked.
Masked in maleficence,
masked in mischief,
masked in mystery.

These masks may provide protection
from memories that have come and moved on.
Melodramatic memories-
Memories that mesmerize us into madness.

Many of us may pretend,
pretend the memories never happened,
But they happened.
They mortify us until we are traumatized beyond belief.

But there will come a time,
a time when we must remove our masks
and motivate other humans
to remove their masks aswell.

And when all the masks are removed,
the mourning and moping will end
and we will move on to
a more meaningful and moralistic state of life.

The End
