Life Changes

.

Born with a pure soul,

Unsullied, untarnished

As the proverbial driven snow

Life scars us, erodes and corrodes

Our spirit, forcing us to hide

Our face behind a mask

And grow a shell around our heart.

Thus armoured, we sally forth

Among the worldly-wise,

Pretending to fit,

Tho’ ill-equipped,

And no one expects or suspects

That what they see is not reality.

The Day the Mask Slipped

The Day the Mask Slipped

***

The day the mask slipped

You showed your other face again,

Dishing out the pain.

Before – in anger and in rage,

Now – you’ve turned the page.

The phony face of reason you displayed,

But your hand you overplayed

The day the mask slipped.
