Behind that mask

Poetry By: Trupti Soman

I know this sucks.
Anyway it is about how people put masks of fake innocence, smiles....

Behind that mask

Are millions of tears

However, you still smile

Keep up the fake expression

Hide your fears

There is a pretense of happiness

It is not true

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

The covering of lies

Over a single truth

You keep on saying

The complete opposite of what is true

How long can you

Cover that one truth behind those lies

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

Innocence plays at your face

You are guilty

Doing something wrong

Is what you hide

Blame it on others

It will not hurt you

But tear that person from within

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

Fear of speaking out

You cannot spill what you know

There is a mask upon your face

Of not knowing something

It is a mask of cowardice

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

You will have to come out in the open

Remove that mask

Of fake smiles, innocence, truth and pretence

It is time to take out that mask

To show what is

Behind that mask
