English Poetry

Every person in his life now and then wears a mask to hide his real identity.The poem is about that mask…….


I was once sad and lonely

Having nobody to comfort me

So I wore a mask that always smiled

To hide my feelings behind a lie.


Before long,I had many friends

With my mask,I was one of them

But deep inside,I still feel empty

Like I was missing a part of me.


Nobody could hear my cries at night

For I designed my mask to hide the lies

Nobody could see the pain I was feeling

For I designed my mask to be laughing.


Behind all the smiles were the tears

And behind all the comforts were the fears

Everything you think you see

Wasn’t Everything there was to me.


Until now I am still searching

For the thing that”ll stop my crying

For someone who’ll erase my fears

For the person who’ll wipe my tears.


But till then I will keep on smiling

Hiding behind the mask I’m wearing

Hoping one day I can smile

Till then I will be here…..waiting..

    Indeed a very beautiful poem
    about the variety of masks that we wear
    For hiding our reality, feelings, pains & tears
    Liked immensely.
    Once we realise this & do away with our masks
    Living I feel sure can be really an enjoyable task

    Beautiful,Gaurav. But one
    should be clever and tactful
    too to wear the appropriate
    mask in time.Otherwise, the
    cat will be out of the bag.

    very impressive. Forthright.
    We are all “works in progress”.
    Maybe when one day comes to remove a mask and your features are ready to express of themselves the form of the mask,
