Mask or Shield…

Is what you feel a mask or a shield?
Are you hiding or preparing for the fight of your life?
Sadness falling over the smile that beautifully beams
Tears behind the eyes that are intending to survive

As time ticks away
Many feelings all but fade
The tomorrow seen is not today
Isolated with time to pray

The mask…
The mask to conceal the pain still felt
The mask that conformed
That really needs help
Sorrows of man who feels a waste of his yesterday

The shield…
The shield to combat and survive
Who fends off the greenest eye
Battling for the freedom of next time
Covering the warrior’s pain filled cry
