A Moment of Deception

Photo by Laurentiu Robu on Pexels.com

We all hide

We take out a mask

And put forth

What the world expects

We often want to vanish

Escape from what we know

To a different life

We can put on a costume

And forget what ails us

But the mask and the costume

Must eventually come off

It is ok to flee for a moment

Take a break

Just don’t expect it to last

Reality will follow us

No matter how good the disguise

Remember the illusion is only temporary
