A Beautiful Mask Of Smile! Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

A Beautiful Mask Of Smile!

Rating: 4.5

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! ! !

A beautiful write on Smile, that masks our all other emotions to give an impression of our gentle behaviour.No one can see our pain, suffering, anger or hatred.We hide under the facade of our smile and show that every thing is O.K. with us.There also comes a time when we leave that guard and come out open with our real feelings- - pain, suffering, love, hatred or anger. Thanks for sharing this lovely poem.

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

A beautiful smile is the wonderful art God has done in the face of human being. We smile in both joy and sorrow. Day and night carry beautiful stars. All the stars smile at night and Sun smiles at day. When we smile in joyful mood we forget all pain. Revisiting this poem we feel very happy.
