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


Vivek Upadhayay

I am never satisfied with what I have, and never Doubt on what I can conquer. I do not just look only in straight direction, because the world of wisdom is walking beside me and I also discover the sully soul on my other side, I am a camouflage of both. I turn around and try to walk backward to see what I keep within, deep, behind my back and accept the strokes wind puts on my face and make myself ready to get shocked any moment in life, because Things will change their shape and dimension in coming years, Good will become bad and bad will become the best. because it is what I have seen yet. Even me will not remain me, but my instinct will never change neither my love for certain things. So I surge up into the territory of stars, out of this world and try to find who I am today ?


  • 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. 😥

      • 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…
