Masque

Vast negatively, compels you to cheat the robe, you wear, 
or ditch the woman or man, to hide utter profanities, you swear;
 
Donning face of a sheep, how the wolf  looks? when it weeps, 
or a dog given a henna colouring, black patches, how it leaps?
 
May look like an innocuous sheep, or a ferocious leopard, for a while,
At large, the most vital freedom and feel on its original  life style;
 
Reclaim fading face, loosing ‘who you’re’, hiding the ugly heart,
Stamp down fine virtues, another controversy,  going  to kick start;
 
It takes long, to wear on the face, a loving constant smile,
Faking something, you are not, feigning an erudition  versatile;
 
It is difficult to speak the truth, fiction helps in a great size up,
In the garb of someone else,  can even drink from an empty cup;
 
It is difficult to detect, a resister with subtle negative thoughts,
Cautiously trust, in your way, as in an upright triangle, three dots;
 
Note: Three dots, one above the two in an upright triangular shape, means 'Therefore' or  an opinion or judgment reached after consideration.

When we wear it we're in defeat I rather be truthful and lose myself and die a valiant death upon a shelf So no masks shall I ever where I go each day with random flair Knowing the truth will set me free No hiding fake smile behind a mask for thee

I loved your poem because people wear there masks all they're lives and keep themselves bottled up. Great insight and wisdom.

When Jesus saw people who needed a friend, He hung out with them. He wasn't afraid of what others might think. (Luke 5:29-30) Being cognizant of who you are at all times and applying the same techniques day to day so others will see you as reliable in your words. Very nice Dushyant
