Masked Faces

Mask: to conceal from view, disguise or hide.

Mask, such a small, insignificant piece of tangible cloth in most cases, but a very crucial invisible shield to those cases undercover. This goes unseen by the naked eye, because you truly think you know somebody - they're beliefs, morals, dreams, hopes. But in reality everyone wears a mask. I am not here to be the one to crush people's image of trust or intimacy, but no one is truly themselves.

A great teacher once told me "you are only you, behind closed doors." I find this to be absolutely 100% true. Although we don't like to admit it, this is held true in everyone of our hearts. When you are tucked away in the sanctity of your room, emotions are expressed, thoughts fly free like brilliant fireflies on a cool summer night, and signs of unapproval and disgust from a world full of hatred slowly dwindle into a nonexistent dream. I tend to think that maybe we are not that different from each other - me and you. You may be the reader, but you could be the writer as well. It takes one small incident of fate to make one wake up and realize their full potential. But if you are not the writer that's quite alright. Some are meant to decipher one's hidden language, after all the world is full of brilliance, wisdom, power and expertise. All the world is at our fingers; yes, us, having unthinkable possibilities and dreams. But all these possibilities.. are sadly.. once again masked. No one really reaches for what they want, for fear of unobtainable goals. No one sees the opportunity within themselves to be so much more then they realize. If one could just take off the mask, we'd all realize, we're the same. Afraid, scared, lonely, anxious - more than words can express. Just take off the mask set your soul and spirit flying for once, not to be touched by what others say. If we could all do that, there'd be a difference in what we see today. There'd be a difference our way of life. There'd be a difference... without the mask.
