Mask – A Boon

By Dr Swati A Gadgil
Mask is a boon
which might disappear soon…
Do we realise,
that one needs to be happy
leaving all thoughts crappy
no frown on forehead
and a grin adorning your beautiful face
that no one can comprehend…..
But there is a big obstacle
and hesitation to overcome
They might call me mad
imbecile and brad,
though my smile is a curved line
they would say I am distorted….
What a dilemma
I want to smile but cannot,
have to put up learned look
and emotions to blot,
I was happy when Masks arrived
I could smile unedited, unaccounted,
endlessly and feel the bliss,
hidden from the world….
lest they would judge me
and quarantine expressions of mine
I am merrily smiling behind my mask
day and night in His glory I bask,
Lords mercy shinning through
though everybody
may not believe it to be true,
I smile and smile
not for a while
but through the brilliant day
and serene nights,
Faith supreme
as my love is extreme,
My unedited version
behind the mask,
as Mask is a boon
which will sadly disappear soon…..
