The Mask

On my face, is a mask of happiness and care,
But behind it hides sadness and despair;

Depression and tension lurk at every corner,
Suspicions and Fear are not at all foreigners;

Bribery and Corruption, killing and murder,
Not even did I hear once of a court order;

Why you kidnap, and then provide a ransom,
To tell you the truth, I can neither understand nor fathom;

You refuse to make a legal, lawful living,
I wonder why you don’t have any misgivings;

I dream, I imagine, a world without you,
A world where laughter rings in the air, a world where the sky is always blue;

Darkness is being spread around like lice,
Laughter is being licked by a billion termites;

On my face, is a mask of happiness and care,
But behind it hides sadness and despair.
