Everyone wears a mask
Whether it be of smiling or pain
Hate or Love
Shame or pride
Ego or Anger

Everyone wears a mask
It cracks sometimes
People can see through the chipped paint
See past the fake
See past the facade

We all wear masks
Ones of animals
Ones of other people
Ones that we would like to be
Ones that we hate

We all have a mask
Something we can hide behind
Something we can use to fight
Something that keeps us safe
Keeps us okay in the beginning

These masks
Keep our secrets
Hold our treasures in locked vaults
Keep our hearts from breaking
Keep the tears from showing

We all have masks
You can paint them up
It can be anything
Because no one can see past the mask
No one knows what anyone's face really looks like

Humanity is made of Masks
What is yours painted of?
just got a thought concept

A side to mimic the other, one in black the other white. A bullet hole dead centre of the forehead.

I created a character who wears a faceless grey mask, to conceal what he did to himself, but also as a symbol of himself.

i am... a mocking bird. all of my life i was bullied, and so i learned to blend in with any crowd. this mixed m\with my natural love for ppl helped me become EXTREMELY social and i suppose u could say fake. name a clique, i can get along with them

Ah, you are a crowd surfer then? I am kind of like that, but I tend to be more anti-social and don't talk to people IRL, but that leads people to believe that I am a really nice person >.<; so I just ignore them XD I am sorry you were bullied :(

Precisely. This is exactly how I wished I could word it in my own freeverse poem "The Story of a Girl..."

If my mask were something people could see, it would simply be a rounded off, neutral colored stone mask with an emotionless face.

Shikyo-Uchiha Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Student General Artist
I think that mask would be better than the masks that you can't tell if the emotion is true or not?
