' Mask' Poem by anushmadhu Sanna Ratnavel

' Mask'

Rating: 3.2

You are trying to impress others
When you are not trying for yourself, (But you never impressed yourself)

You are afraid of the darkness
The devils exist in your heart;

Your heart is a dustbin
Of your discreditable s;

Your mind is a secret dark room
And afraid and ashamed of
Your awkward thoughts;

Your mind is a theatre for blue scripts
And it stages your dreams for
Your personal entertainments;

And you know,
You are not the actor there
But you are real in the drama,
It is not possible for you
To screen for the public;

Your mind is a milky way
And churn that for ambrosia,
And you would expel the poison too,

Your mind is an eagle,
Despite flying in the sky
It searches for dead rats on the earth;

Your mind is a sieve lid
It never retains useful stuff, but the waste;

Your mind is a great ocean
It has a secret deepness-But
You are less aware of this fuzzyness;

The face does not carry your address
But the mind hides your address,
You have no courage to address;

Your address is a myth-and
Your face is also a myth
Hence they don’t see each other’s.

The society is a hall for mask dance
We all dance there with own masks

The mask is your crown
If it is removed, you lose your kingdom..

Kaviko in Tamil- aalaabanai.

We all adopt masks to wear in public You have to earn the right to see what the mask hides

I recall I went to a masquerade ball. It is to understand that you can't identify each one of them who is or not your friend. It is to understand then that each one of them is hiding their own story life. You can't tell who is good or bad unless everybody doff their masks from their faces. Therefore it is difficult to judge each one until you have the chance to unmask each one of them. This is a philosophical write, good work, mate.10+

Many wear a mask. Many dance a different dance behind their eyes. I have worn a mask at times. But, OH! The joy and the freedom when I lose my mask and my false kingdom adn enter into another, an eternal kingdom where God is Lord and truth is always true.
