Unreal Masks - Poem by cecil hickman

What is it you see, do you have any idea.
Eyes will deceive, what is true reality.
Each of us wears several masks.
Some secretly dark and others light hearted.
They all have them, yes even you now here.
People place a mask to hide different aspects.
To hide what they lack or hide what they have.
One could say as you look upon them today.
That all is known, but that is truly an unreal lie,
For we all hide under a new mask each day.
While another slides into play upon the eve.
Each mask we display has its own purpose.
With reality of our hearts and minds hidden,
Take notice of what may be hidden by humans.
Unreal masks; reveal the truth again and again.
