Exposed

This  mask I  wear is  crumbling falling

Away,  melting  and slipping  down

Don’t look I am appalling

My true face brings a frown

Seared skin melting fast

No more caring

Smiling mask

Now see

Me

    But we’d see a very different you if we saw your spirit and what’s in your heart.

    I enjoyed this. And immediately thought….we shouldn’t have to wear a mask.

    Lovely post. Our real faces are what God created and sees. He of course thinks they are absolutely beautiful and wishes we would stop covering them. Easier said than done…;)

    Sometimes, smiles are over-rated. It’s great when we can smile, but our real selves have all kinds of feelings that don’t all involve smiling. It’s sad (no smile) that we think that we have to pretend to be “happy” no matter what. Life isn’t really like that. Weird expectations we’ve heaped upon ourselves.
