If we choose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusion.

We can allow ourselves to be deceived by false realities or we

can use them to hide our true intentions. All too often, we mask

the truth within us concealing ourselves for fear of losing the ones

we love or prolonging a deception for those we wish to expose.

We hide behind that mask which brings us comfort from pain

and sadness or we use it to hide a truth too hurtful to accept

  1. Ahh….hiding behind the mask. It’s a coping skill we learn very early on. But, once we make the hard, labor-intensive deicision to take off the mask, we find we’re on the road to healing.

    Love your writing! True to the heart!


  2. If everyone cared and nobody cried
    If everyone loved and nobody lied
    If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
    Then we’d see the day when nobody died

    The world needs more honesty. I am usually very direct with whatever is on my mind and the few people that know the real me have come to accept and love that part of me. The few that preferred the lie are no longer around and I am a better person because of it.
