Masquerade

"Why do you want to act?"
Reads the application
What a silly question.
"When I'm on stage
It's the only time I'm myself
When I'm on stage
I feel free."

I think on

I feel free.
Free of my ever-present mask.
A mask I can only remove,
When I find another one to put on.

"Life is a masquerade
We're all just guests.
Actors are the jesters.
Playing a fool,
Making the jokes,
But free of a mask."

Yes

Actors are the only ones
Free of their mask.
