Masks

Masks

A Poem by Nankoto
"

It's uh... Been a while, I've missed this part of my life so much. And I've been in the dumps lately and this came to me. I hope you all enjoy.

"
What do I say
When the words won't come?
What do I do
When I'm lost in the past?
Who can I trust
When I can't trust myself?
And where am I to go
When I don't know where I am?

There has to be more
To this little thing we call life
I need to find some purpose
Before I lose myself
In these words

The scars are my burden
And my reminder
That I've been a fool
For all of my life

Can I redeem myself
Or am I cursed
To wear a mask
For the rest of time?

Pretty powerful words here, no doubt. It's true that many, if not all of us, have worn masks for most of our lives. It takes so darn long to figure out who we really are, and it takes plenty from deep down inside of us to try to do the best we can in our lives, and make the best of it. For most of us, it's a really tough road. I know i've been down it, and am still going down it, until somethin lets up. But the main thing is that when we express ourselves, it brings somewhat of a relief, and a weight is lifted so that we may carry on to try to do good in some way or another. Great piece here! :)
