My Masquerade

Strangely Art Prompt Challenge

By Kelli Sheckler-AmsdenPublished about a month ago 1 min read


A collection of feelings

bundled up in a mood

An emotional healing

until I'm feelin' good

Switching up the agendas

trying on something new

Redefining magenta

from the cool shades of blue

If I don't like who I am

I just switch up the mask

Rewrite the program

let the new me, unpack

I've got no inhibitions

cause I do as I please

I'm switching positions

like the breeze in the trees

I can make myself happy

don't need someone to please me

I'm like Peppermint Pattie

and the whole world's Charlie

Doesn't matter if you like it

you can just let me be

I'm so lit I emit

to the nth degree

Can't mess with this power

of that there's no doubt

What could make it go sour?

fuck around and find out
