I go through my daily tasks,
talking to people with ornate masks.
My own mask is merely a mirror,
reflecting the superficial,
revealing nothing from the inside.
Imagine my surprise
when I suddenly see someone's face.
Their worries, their joys,
hear the passion in their voice.
I lift my own mask,
excited to truly smile,
to shout: Here I am!
Can you see me too?
Eventually they leave.
The mask goes back on.
I'm left wondering,
how to shatter it once and for all.
