Masquerade


Life is one big masquerade. We all have masks. You might think that you know someone after years of friendship, love or family. You don't.

Everyone is someone else in front of other people. You are no different. Even if you don't know it, you still hide your inner self from others. Your fantasies, dreams, fetishes, thoughts, desires. No one knows about the truth.

We have different rolls to play in different situations with certain people. With your lover, maybe you come off as strong and confident. Maybe you try to be strong in front of him/her by not showing feelings.

With friends we're funny, active, happy and nice, depending on what your roll in your group of friends is of course. Maybe you're a joker, the leader or a watcher, who just goes along with everything.

As a parent, we come off as the gods of our children. We make good and smart choices in front of them to show them how it's suppose to be done. We almost never show fear in the presence of our kids. We live to protect them, that is your roll as a parent.

When we're alone. When no one can see, hear or judge, we take our masks off and for a breaf moment, we are ourselves. We think about ourselves, nobody else matters. We can breath easily without worrying that somebody will find you disturbed, disgusting and strange.

I hate the masks that we must wear, but I'm no different. The ones without masks are the "freaks". They're the "sick ones". The ones who doesn't deserve air. There are freaks with masks too, but there masks are broken. Almost fallen of there face.

That's what they say. Your mask is a curse and a gift. It keeps you from hate and anger, but brings you nothing but loneliness and sadness.
