Masks - Poem by Kelsea Osterman

Anger, sadness, happiness, hope, and love. These simple things all have different masks that you must ware to hide what you really are feeling. Each one is pointless to the point that makes no sense. Here I am trying to think of a way to make any sense at all. I try and say that everyone hides behind a mask and yet so do I. I try and hide how I really feel with a little fake smile. And then when I am all alone I let it out all the hurt the pain the anger the sadness and at the same time I am slowly losing all my faith in the world. I want to say that I am happy that I really don’t hurt any more so people can stop trying to comfort me. People need to see that I dont need nor want their sympathy. People need to see I can take care of myself and I dont need them. But really dont believe the mask that I ware really all I want is for someone to hold me close and never let me go. I need someone to love me for me and not what I could be.

    The one thing about those who wear masks is that they do so to hide themselves and/or their intentions. You can tell, the masks we all wear must come off so others can do the same. The game is still played to an ineffectual means as the players become more convincing in their deception. Who one really is compels the truth be told; so allow your true light to shine darlin no matter who brings in the darkness. you will be respected for what you stand for, or not stand for; and if you refuse to wear a mask you negate the reason others choose to wear one.
    Respectfully Joey d. Ghost Writer Insomnis

    PS. interestingly you may want to check out my biography under Ghost Writer Insomnis, it's scarily to the point......
