Behind the Mask
By Sarita Milliner
Behind the mask is a face of grace, Enhanced by the lines, of life’s rat race! A thing of beauty with a story untold, Eyes send a message that soothes the soul! Behind the mask hidden from reality, Is an unconscious mind, full of mystery! Brain waves quivering with every heartbeat, Still clinging to life, not accepting defeat! Behind the mask is a smile of relief, As a mist fills the room with disbelief! Lips whispering words softly in ones ear, To let them know there’s nothing to fear! Behind the mask is a heart of gold, Living on forever in an angelic soul!
