Another Mask

Another Mask

The cracks begin to show on the mask I wear

Thin lines not of laughter but sorrow spread out

From my lips to the frown that is always there;

It slips from my face exposing inate doubt.

This face should not see the light of any day

This remains hidden for it I will not show;

The complexion is ghostly pale almost grey

The pain that lies beneath the skin does not go.

I select another facade from my chest--

Fixing it into place I feel fit for life;

Remain hidden behind a false front is best

Keep to myself the worries and all the strife.

How long before the cracks now begin to show?

Will I have another mask I do not know.
