Mask - Poem by Esther Mukabi

We both smile and laugh. We talk
Still I am not like you.
Standing alone in a crowd,
Empty and afraid.

You see me and know me,
Your boisterous friend.
My laugh is louder than yours.
My smile is a little broader.

You come to me with troubles
And I’m always there.
But “where do you go to, my lovely, ”
When the tables are turned?

Do you know me yet?
I sit across from you now.
Look into my eyes
For they alone are unmasked.

I’m fine
