Day 16. The masked identity

When we grew up

we wore a mask

to hide what we are

and led a life

of inconvenience

for convenience

of society

The mask which helped us

in hiding our burst

we forgot to take off

because we were afraid

of reality.

we were forced,

by society

to follow the rules

and be in a line,

and be in limits.

We all are fake,

and afraid to take

the huge truth

from which we are running

and hiding

under the mask.

We see in mirrors ,

a different face of ourselves

a face that this society

wants us to have

we have forgot

how we looked like

without the mask

what were our dreams

what kind of person we were

our inner soul

has lost

deep in dark

all which has left

curtailed wings

diminished visions

reduced reality

and the masked identity

  1. Hence the named masked disguise

    A wonderful piece ! Very true in the present world. It’s so sad to see so many masks around, you never even realise who is going through what, because everyone is so scared to reveal the real them. 😥

    1. very true, Even we have forgot our own real face, we have forgot our basic instincts. 😦

      1. Because now it’s not a choice but a lifestyle to wear masks for everyone fears that’s their real faces will be criticised so the fake ones becomes the default faces, and the gum to these is provided by the dark society in these dark times. And so we develop a masked identity.

    If we can come out of the biggest story that we sell ourselves i.e. लोग क्या सोचेंगे?… We will certainly head towards unmasking this veil that you so aptly talk about and achieve those dreams we have forgot we once had…
