Taking Off The Doll Mask

Many are out there who seem to be perfect, like dolls
Blinded by the 'many's' fake smiles and unshattered faces
Yet, their flaws have been overlooked- their falls
Smiling happily in all places
Just like a Barbie doll

When the 'many' receive company, it's their time to be plastic again
Just so no one would look through their curtains
Living in fear of being unaccepted through their real selves-be slain
Not wanting to be in that unaccepted pain
Living like a perfectly normal and plastic Barbie doll

Many are scared and live with doll faces
Scared of receiving our ignorance
Yet this should be different-the hypocritically perfect cases
We should show love because we never know who's really tense
Anyone can be a Barbie doll, even you

Let's show love to all, even the most perfect and hated, now
For in this world we should make others welcome
Who knows what they do when they take their doll faces on now
We don't know the trouble we cause in them for their fear of us
Let's help take their Barbie doll mask off

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There are a lot of people in this world who seem to be perfectly okay but end up in being one of the people in the world who face many problems. Due to being so perfect, we overlook their flaws or falls, we look at their doll faces and accept them for that. Thus, they become scared of 'opening the curtains' or revealing their real selves in fear of our ignorance. Will we accept them then? That's why we should show as much love as we can to everyone. We never know who is hiding in an undying fire. All we know is that, even if they don't 'open the curtains', we can at least help them feel loved. :)

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
