Gather my masks

Gather my masks

A Poem by Jon Roggie

Another day,
and for me,
no different than most.

Choose a face to match the day.

Try and make it pleasant.

   and I stop

   break

  pause
  
  breath

Which face should it be today?

Society has created so many faces to choose from, reminds of that saying about being yourself as everyone else is taken :)

I envy the animal world, for there seems to be no judgment of facial expressions, or lack of.

Animals are honest. When they snarl, you might want to pay attention. Not so honest with humans.read more

Agreed....
This reminds me of a tv show from my childhood called Worzel Gummidge, where John Pertwee played a scarecrow that came alive when no one was around and had different heads he could wear, Happy, scary etc.
We all so get usedto the face in the mirror that we sometimes forget it's what other people see too.
And no matter how many times I put on my happy head, its usually morphed into my "leave me alone" head by lunch time 😀
