A child's masquerade

Updated on June 30, 2011

Golden Mask



Every day we encounter a different situation which leaves a mark

Singing the high notes and head held high

Even though deep inside we are beside ourselves

Many faces we show to those around us

As darkness surrounds us we fear to show the true one

For fear enhances the darkness

As the music plays, we try to overcome

But many just dance comfortable in the face they have on

As I reach for you, you shy away

I stand still as the music plays

Realizing I cannot help you no more

For one day you yourself will face the music

In the true self you are

Then and only then will you stop playing the dance of the masquerade.
