Life truly is a masquerade
A masquerade of funny masks
Of scary masks and sad masks
And funny eh?

Man wears a mask
To conceal a volcano within
The lava of boiling emotions
Plugged merely by a paper face
Truly funny eh?

Happy mask while hurt
Is gleefully at the heart gnawing
Sad mask to respect the dead
While the mind anxiously
Thinks of the red dress on display
Scary masks to scare wits
While inside you alone
Are threatened to bits!

Life truly is a masquerade
Each running to clutch a mask
To find shelter behind
Nothing but mere paper
Really funny eh?
