North American Dreaming: The Mask

We hide behind masks instead of revealing our true selves, says William Burkholder.

What lies
Behind the mask,

The masquerades

That those who wear,
Should stop and stare,
And see the truth for once,

Flesh, skin, and bone,
Relinquished from its home,

The truth of one's own soul,

We hide in doors and walls,
We hide with masks, and call,

“Can’t you see me for what I am?”

Our disguise is self inflicted,
Our hearts become restricted,
To living,
To loving and,
Being free.
