Mask - Poem by Manu Dash

I get up
and put on the mask
till I retire to bed.
Over the years it has been
dearer and dearer to me.

Donning it,
I play different roles,
deliver different dialogues,
and throw different expressions
at different people.

I try my best to keep
everybody happy and agile.

All have forgotten
that I too have a face
of my own, and,
when I exhibit it,
they fail to recognise.
