Keep it alive

What do you see # 42- 10 August 2020

( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows face of a woman. It is painted with luminous glitter paint and the features are highlighted with bright yellow lines, ending in a question mark on the forehead)

The human chameleon
Dancing behind the glitter mask
As we all do these days
When there is no right side of the bed
To get out of
You don’t want to smile
And say good morning to neighbours
So on goes the mask
Pleasantries said
You feel worse
That nagging feeling inside
Telling you to be true to yourself
Pleasant society demands it
You know being rude
Will not help the mood you’re in
The question is
How long can we hold the mask steady?
When tears push through the mask slips
You have shown your vulnerable side
No way to push that side of you
Behind the mask
You have shown a side of yourself
That will be remembered
She’s not as tough as she makes out
After all…
