People wear masks today,
Hiding from everyone.
A different face for everyone,
No truth in anyone.
They have forgotten their true self,
These masks are them now.
They give way to their earthly emotions,
In their wake, they bow.
There is a great variety in these masks,
Anger, hatred and contempt are just a few.
They run to countless numbers,
And each day, more are being discovered new.
These masks hide the face quite well,
With the true self, it leaves no ties.
But the only thing these masks can't hide,
It is their sad eyes.
These eyes say everything.
Nothing remains hidden.
They expose the only emotion,
That these masks had always forbidden.
Every person today i sad,
Something or the other is not right.
Nothing goes the way they want,
Life seems to be, too big a fight.
These masks cover everything but the eyes.
And only eyes speak the truth.
Even though the soul craves,
For someone to at least see that it is sad...
The windows of faces remain shut with lies.
With only slits of truths,
Their Sad Eys.
