Window Dressing - Poem by Heather Burns

In this journey called life
there are many masquerading

changing faces daily to fit
the occasion

window dressing creating
deceptive appearances

some disguised as a clown
others not so ornate

trying to fool the very elite
resting behind a veil unclear.

    This brings to mind an old saying called life is a masquerade.
    We may put on many guises but in the end our hearts and mind
    are exposed. Be yourself and you won't have to worry about this.

    Sage words in this piece. So many are either deceptive or obsequious when honesty is the best face just to be one's self. (Report) Reply

    A great poem, I have met many people like this, it's a part of life we can't avoid,
    but with luck we see them for what they are before they destroy too much of us. (Report) Reply
