Beyond Masks

Year 2011 made me wiser!
I discovered real faces
hidden under masks
The masked faces were
showing wrinkle free smile
sugar-coated words
pretending humbleness.
True self of a person
is tested only in crisis
the way it is handled.
Some brood and wait
evaluate the situation
reflect on the words
some lash out their
inner hidden garbage
and spread out filth.
The moment it happens
their faces become naked
their masks crack down and
people see them who they really are!
This is how friendship cracks down
this is how intimate people become enemies
Watch  for a mask of kindness!
Nothing is free, look for its price tag.
Sometimes we have to pay too much price
for someone’s tiny kindness.
Meanings underneath humbleness
could be a fire-ball underneath snow.
