We wear one mask because it's who we truly want to be,
And another because it's what someone wants us to be.
one because it's what someone else needs,
It satisfies them.
Not ourselves.
and another mask is worn because we can't bear to see what's underneath.
Other masks we wear hoping to stay hidden from the world- forever.
But that's the problem with wearing any mask, it can be ripped off at any moment.
What about the masks of who we truly are?
If everyone is afraid to be themselves,
is life one big masquerade?
If so, hold on to your masks and make sure they don't fall off.
