Halloween

I see a congenial, smiling face and then the mask drops. A monster emerges. No. It’s not Halloween. I must be dreaming. The behaviour is different, but voices are familiar. Could it be….?

Again, the mask drops. I see creatures drowning in a sea of fear. They fold hands, they pray and then exercise extra caution in life’s smallest acts. It is a fear of the unknown, the unfamiliar.

Which face is scarier? The one which goes or stays? Which face is real? What I see or feel?

masks are illusions

they go, but real hits hard

Halloween to stay..
