The Purpose of a Mask

The Purpose of a Mask

A Poem by Shroud
"

We all wear Masks No one is as they seem

"
"What is the purpose of a mask?"
"To conceal the identity of the wearer"
"To hide what does not want to be found"
"To create something that does not exist"
"To be someone who you are not"
“Over time, as we age”
“Our masks will crack and tear”
“But they will never leave”
“What is the purpose of a mask?”
“To hide us, and everything we dislike”

Sorry this one is much darker, I wrote it in a... less than happy mood.
