The Mask - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Hiding in plain sight
Horrible scars
Broken hearts
Sadness
Loneliness
Worn in public
On our masked faces
As we try to forget
To be normal again
In our hearts
In our spirits
We stand stitched together
Our hearts beating stronger
Determined to succeed
To shed our past
And face our future
In our brand new masks

Topic(s) of this poem: pain, sorrow

    Truly, As we try to forget
    To be normal again
    In our hearts
    In our spirits
    We stand stitched together

    Wearing the mask of disguised emotions..........10
