Favorite Quote:
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind dont matter, and those who matter dont mind!"

When the eyes are shielded,

Emotions can no longer be seen.
They act as a mask,

Hiding one’s soul from the world.
Anyone who slides them onto their face,

Steps right into line,
Marching through their life

Like toy soldiers.
When undistinguishable,

Identities can be changed.
People can act as another,

As if their lives are carefree.

As if nothing can faze them.
Yet, when they fall off,

Everyone sees who they really are.
Who would want to be unmasked

When one can hide from reality forever.
Sunglasses: turning the world into a giant masquerade,

Once face at a time.
