WE WEAR THE MASK

We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes– This debt we pay to human guile; With torn and bleeding hearts we smile And mouth with myriad subtleties.     Why should the world be over-wise. In counting all our tears and sighs? Nay, let them only see…
