Face the World

Look around
Check again
What is may not be
What is real?
What is fiction?
Do we see people
Or the masks
With which they face the world?

To survive
To withstand
To overcome
You must wear a mask
But after a while
It’s hard to take off

If you don’t like what you see
Do you remain?
Do you look for the person
Behind the mask?
Do they know they wear it?

When you see the mask
For what it is
Knowing it must still be worn
Join together
Wear the masks
And together
Face the world
