Unmask Me

a poem by Kaavyashri Rao

There is a day in every person’s life
Where there seems to them, no end to their strife
That day they think that the whole world’s a farce
That day they think that genuine people are too scarce
He rightly said that the world’s a stage
And we’re mere actors

Actors who wear masks for various factors
Masks of joy, masks of sorrow
Masks full of emotions to lend and borrow
Physically or emotionally, your masks peel

That day you can’t even have a peaceful meal
Cause your mask made world begins to crumble
Your fate starts to tumble and gossipy mouths begin to mumble

But, dear friend, it is never too late
To take the vile thing off and start with a clean slate!
