With Memorial Day on Monday, I’m a little late, but wanted to participate anyway! Hope that’s ok be kind rewrite ~ Inspiration Monday XIII?
How to make a mask!
With a dire desire to build a mask,
I ponder life’s bold images,
And scan the shapes, the colors, and shades,
And gauge life’s starts and finishes.
What sort of mask do I need today,
Something bright and frilly,
Or perhaps today I wish to say,
Something dark and chilly.
What shall I choose to become today,
A mask of joy or sorrow,
What passion shall I evoke today,
Red or blue, green or yellow?
I hear you scoff at my contemplation,
That I dare to design my mask,
Who does yours, I sweetly inquire,
Or should I bother to ask?
Very thoughtful and thought provoking. To make a mask that serves us and others, but does not enslave us. To be the sort of person we need to be, but also be true to ourselves…I might have to steal some of these ideas for my poetry 🙂 I’ll be sure to credit you!
Thank you! I’ve been thinking & writing some lately on the demise of individual character here in the states. It seemed a logical follow through to pose mask-building is a personal responsibility! 🙂 I appreciate your take from the perspective of service vs enslavement! Very good thought! Am I master or slave? Haha Well thank you again for coming by & sharing your thoughts!
Somehow I missed this InMon post. You’ve made some interesting points on the topic, food for thought.
Ooo. This is fantastic. Perfect last line!
hahaha I can be such a little brat! So self-righteous … hahaha But cool prompts, girlfriend!
