Masks of dreams

Updated on April 17, 2017

Place of birth for many dreamers
this world, for each of us, has a mask
every life is like one story,
where dreams come falling down
like castles of sand.

But when I put the mask, everything is much easier
in every battle my heroic armor gleams,
while I'm walking on roads
that are still unattainable to human step,
imagination takes me through the meadow of dreams.

Hidden deep beneath the mask,
out of sight of the eyes of the world,
far from the pain and tears and war,
far from terrestrial bird's songs
I'm flying free above the rivers and green lawns.

Oh, we are all just part of the show
and sometimes we become the main actors
but performance that lasts, will pass quickly
like fascinating and colorful sunset beams
and new masks we'll put in dreams.

      Removing a mask is difficult, but we all wear them at times. The key is knowing when we can remove them safely, even in our dream's. A thought provoking piece!

      Tremendous thoughts. Beautifully written.

      That which remains beating,

      After all the beatings.

      Mind it, Mask you must,

      This innocent heart.

      Wonderful poem about reality. Masks, I will now say, are needed. Its taken me a long long time to get this but some people are unsafe for you. Your intial mask is necessary until you get a real feel for who the person is with their mask and beyond their mask. Sometimes you even then, still do not "see" who the person is until all too late. It is an unfortunate aspect of life but a neccessity to wear a mask at least to begin with.
