A Beautiful Mask Of Smile! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Who has not crossed the bridge of,
Pile of emotions keeps on flickering,
Day and night like the beautiful stars,
Twinkling in the sky, though not visible,
In the bright sunlight!
Like the Mask of beautiful smile,
Covering the painful face.

No one knows whats going inside one's mind.
Like a birdie trapped,
Inside a cage singing painful song.
Loud clapping heard outside for singing.
But inside the cage was a weeping bird.
No one listened her painful cries.

Like a joker in a circus, making the people laugh.
But inside his laughter lies the cries of pain.
As all his days were not pleasant ones.
He has to make people laugh
Whatever pain he carries with him.

A mask of beautiful smile hides all the pains behind.
Yes its the mask and only mask plays the beautiful roles.

Will I be ever able to unveil the mask?
Yes, a day will come
When I will unveil my mask.
And laugh out loudly
Cry out loudly
Shout out loudly
And live a day only and only for me.

No day is same.
Every day is a new day
As bright as sun!
Which is sure to come in! ! !

    A beautiful write on Smile, that masks our all other emotions to give an impression of our gentle behaviour.No one can see our pain, suffering, anger or hatred.We hide under the facade of our smile and show that every thing is O.K. with us.There also comes a time when we leave that guard and come out open with our real feelings- - pain, suffering, love, hatred or anger. Thanks for sharing this lovely poem. (Report) Reply

    A very pragmatic write, Geetha. Barring a few most of us are actually masking our sorrows and pains under our fabricated smiling face. But if we don't do that, we'd have been died much earlier under the pressure of sorrows.Hence this mask of smile is of immense value to keep us alive.... well done my dear. (Report) Reply
