We create so many masks 

so many masks to hide behind,

to hide our faces

to hide ourselves.

We may make new ones

in wood or plastic,

stone or papier-mâché,

create new faces

or paint our faces like a mask,

make ourselves up,

put ourselves on show

and symbolise

who we are

or want to be

at that time

We’ll only show part of ourselves

that part that we wish to reveal 

at that time.

Or we may a fashion a dreamlike self,

of how we would like to be seen

at that time.

We make ourselves up

as we shape the faces

of our masquerade

like magic.
