The masks we meet...

Dr Manish Kumar Rout

He smiled at me, 
but looks so uninterested, 
and there's another one, 
so hollow is the laugh..... 
this one, seeks sympathy..
but does he really need, 
and then comes she, 
with her empty cries!! 

Faces these are... 
or the masks to wear..! 
each emotion so unreal, 
just for one's own advantage... 
you could feel, 
or just a sense of it, 
searching for a better part, 
deep inside, the soul of it!! 

Ego, fear, or envy, 
we all have it under,
still we want to pretend, 
to make our stand better.... 
early life was so easy, 
the stakes not so high, 
and we could express so freely, 
like pebble in a clear beach!! 

Is it too obvious, 
or are we getting used to it? 
the life taking its own pace, 
just have a ride on it… 
we too are changing, 
situations make us indifferent… 
too ready to wear these- 
the masks, that we meet!!
