    Does the mask become real, if worn long enough, or does it always remain separate? I think the answer might be yes and no. It depends on the person and maybe even the mask. Good philosophical poem.

      Thank you. Each time I read it it is different. Reads differently, means something different. Kinda like a mind bender.

    I love this! I know one thing is for sure, I don’t see myself the real me! I keep digging to find her. I think she’s been buried too long! 😀

    I suppose that we all hide ourselves behind a mask one time or another as it is less painful than acknowledging our “real selves”. Well done my friend.
