A Beautiful Mask Of Smile! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Who has not crossed the bridge of emotions?
Which keeps on flickering?
Day and night like the beautiful stars
Twinkling in the sky,
Though not visible in bright sunlight
It's like the mask of beautiful smiles,
Covering the painful face.

It's like a bird trapped in
Cage sings a painful song
For which the loud clapping heard but
Inside the cage was a weeping bird.

Life, like a joker in circuses, who made people laugh
But hidden in laughter was his painful heart
Though all his days may not be pleasant ones
Yet he has to make the audience laugh.

A mask of beautiful smile hides all the pain behind.
Yes, it's the mask, which play the beautiful roles.

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

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

    Covering the painful face.

    We may mask a smile but it unconsciously boosts our minds. Never fail to smile it has a positive effect on all especially oneself. Nice poem.++10

    a mask of life, pains pleasures and emotions
    a jacket of toughness and softness
    to unveil the significance of life, in order
    wear all to conceal the the real life from others- well done - my 10+ too

    As Shakespeare said, All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts. Masks are an intrinsic part of life, like it or not. Thanks for sharing this poem. (Report)Reply

    Beautiful mask of smile is beautifully unmasked in this gleaming write! The poetess has very candidly unfolded the real darkness behind the smile (the smile here is artificial) . A few lines I would like to quote here, ” Life, like a joker in circuses, who made people laugh/But hidden in laughter was his painful heart/Though all his days may not be pleasant ones/Yet he has to make the audience laugh. Simply I can say a fabulous creation! ! Thanks a lot for sharing. (Report)Reply
