We Wear The Mask

You know how when the sun shines from behind a building, it’s magnanimous structure hides off the light and form shadows?

It’s like.. The shadows tumble upon one another; covering up for their mistakes as they do so. They cower away from the sunlight, but really, the sun’s just too powerful for them. So they take the silhouettes of the broad buildings, masking their identities and mingling with one another in a vain attempt of coverage.

Just like us humans with our masks. We wear such masks daily.

And these masks? They cover the glory in us all; we hide behind them and because we all do so, we all become rather dull and boring. Sometimes, though, we wear a mask to make us shine more; but no matter how you look at it, an artificial light source can never win against a natural one. So break the stereotypical and take off that mask.

Be you.

And you’ll shine brighter than any and every star.

Thank you for reading 🙂

(Credits of the image go to its artist. And today’s a short piece, I know; but I’m currently on my deathbed with lungs that got amnesia and forgot how to function, one hell of a nose and a headache. So bear with me please and pray that I get better xx)

  1. You’ve done it now. You really have. Created such a short piece, capturing the truth, motivating the unmotivated , inspiring the uninspired, being the saviour even while you’re on your ‘deathbed’. Who can beat that?

    I love this line:
    ‘Sometimes, though, we wear a mask to make us shine more; but no matter how you look at it, an artificial light source can never win against a natural one.’
    It also speaks very truly when taking photographs, haha!

    This post reminds me of a famous quote by a famous poet:
    ‘Tear off that mask, your face is glorious’ – Rumi.

    Get well soon, Ayaka! I wish you get better real soon so I can see more of your beautiful post,poems and pieces!

  2. I really hope you get better soon! Don’t worry about how short your piece is, your health is more important. But nonetheless it’s a nice piece and it’s no doubt a good one because you wrote it. 🙂
