Mask World

Mask world:

Array a Mask, they say,

They say, wear a guise.

Don't bottle up, they say,

And don't let the reality perish.

Facade is preferred over a heart;

A heart that's broken, burned and crushed.

You are selfish, they say,

Bear your burden, wrap it with a smile;

Shoulder it with all your might.

Chin up, they say,

Still the strong stride is not proud,

Flakes away innocence, naivety and novelty.

Do as I say, they say,

Be my slave; though is left unsaid.

It's not all despair, they say;

They say, they care,

But it constricts my breath;

Thickens my throat,

To admit what i already know is false.

After all, It's all just a farce world;

A web woven, a command enforced.

This is not a movie review. Why is it posted under "Movies and Movie Reviews?"
