Mask and Emotions - Poem

"Wearing a mask against reality,reduces the risk of harm."

People who are hesitant to live their lives often remark that.

There is a large crowd outside.

During the day, appearing to be a regular person in the throng

Trying to unleash the beast inside when out at night.

When will your mask come off and others start noticing your errors?

You've destroyed enough of the people you trust already.

You might be pardoned, but you can't be kind to them.

Even if you hide your emotions behind a mask, you are still responsible for what you did.

You will be made responsible for your actions and punished for your emotions.

There is no escaping the wrath and severity of reality.

You are familiar with the idea of this.

Dear readers, if you want to support me, you can buy me coffee. Thanks for reading.
