    Masked we live
    Unmasked we die
    Between the truth and the lies
    Moments of joy and grief go hurrying by….

    Each and every human being wears a mask at some point in their lifetime and you have very poetically captured the various reasons why we wear them. The poem is filled with hope for the reader:
    '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'
    There is a wondrous feeling of joy expressed at achieving freedom from wearing a mask and just being the wonderful human being that each of us is.
    The final verse in the poem conveys to the reader how each day in our lifetime is a new day, a fresh start, a new beginning. It is up to each of us to make the very best of each day that is given to us, the choice is ours alone to make.
    Gracefully penned and eloquently expressed, I like this poem very much. It is insightful and thought provoking and excellently crafted. Thank you for sharing dear poetess Geetha. Blessings...

    Congrats, Mdm, for this being the poem of the Day. Each one of us has to wear some or the other mask throughout our life to camouflage our true colours. You have rightly said:
    Mask of beautiful smile / Covering the painful face / (Like a joker in the circus) 'He has to make people laugh.....Will I be ever able to unveil the mask? ' Thanks.

    Very nice. All of us have to wear masks of various types most of the time. As someone said below, writing poetry tends to let our mask slip and show our true emotions. Congratulations on having it selected as poem of the day! (Report) Reply

    We have a public mask and a private mask, sometimes poetry lets the mask slip and the real person, like a butterfly, emerges into the sunlight breaking the bars of the cage. The cage can only hold the body, the spirit cannot be caged. (Report) Reply

    Eternal truth well projected through this beautifully crafted poem. Congrats on the Poem of the Day.

    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.

    The poignancy behind the words is touching....good one.

    But inside the cage was a weeping bird.
    No one listened her painful cries. finally your hope is put into words. finally a day will come then i will unveil the mask and laugh and shout and cry as i will. thank you for the sense of hope which you are conveying to all the readers. yes so many live with masks. it is a smiling facade that we see everywhere. thank you God bless you
