Masks of Life 

At times throughout life
we have all worn a mask
some happy and jovial
others sad or menacing

we hide behind them
afraid of consequences
uncertain of ourselves
scared we`ll be ridiculed

the stage is our play ground
each mask defines an act
some wear wings and halos
to show their goodness in life

some masks give us courage
to cope with life when we`re hurting
other masks hide our real bad side
so we can`t see who they really are

the Devil lurks back stage
an evil grin across his lips
ready to reap callous mischief
upon the unsuspecting victim

a checkered board upon the floor
arches decorate the wings
detached hands that hold our attention
with items that accumulate

so as we cross the stage of life
with our masks to hide behind
remember that the script can change
and true features are best every time..!
