Which one is real?

Mask of Life

Which one is real?

Which one is real?

Etched on your organic skin,
Hiding complacency and wariness,
of complements and lies with a grin;
I show you to the world in steadiness,
with different complexions I bring,
suiting to your mood and friendliness.

Living on your natural face,
Providing social comfort and safety
with a smile of pretense without a trace;
I present you to the world so vainly,
masking shame and fear with grace,
making you look angelic and saintly.

Ingrained on your authentic face,
Changing subtle details of reality,
with cheer in place of sneer, to interface;
I become part of you in normality,
Concealing all your tears and sighs,
For I am the real face of you everyone sees.

Cheers!
Hammett
