“It is a life of make-believe, of masks. We all have masks in life.”-Judd Nelson
Masks. Everyone has worn one. Halloween, masquerades, just for the fun of it. Masks hide our faces. The one thing that can show our true feelings, if we let it. I wear a mask almost everyday. Not literally. Could you picture that? That would only call attention to myself, which is the opposite reason why I wear masks. These masks are unnoticeable, undetectable. I wear them to hid my anger, stress, sadness, you name it, I have a mask for it. Masks can be worn for other reasons too, I suppose. They can be worn to fool someone into thinking your someone else. I guess I wear these masks too. Many people do. You know those girls who are such sweet hearts to you face, and then the moment you turn around, they are vicious, rumor-starting b!itches? They wear masks. How about those kids who used to be so weird, but are now “normal”? They wear them, too. And those kids who seem to have enough confidence in them to share with at least twenty other people and still not seem at all insecure? I could bet you a million bucks that they are wearing a mask of some sort… and I would be one rich kid. I swear to you, absolutely everyone does, whether they know it or not, whether they try to get rid of them or not. I wear these masks so I won’t be made fun of. I hide my thoughts and opinions because I know they are wacky and no where near normal. When I was younger, I didn’t wear masks. No one did. Those were the best times. You could be whoever you liked because masks were non-existent, except for maybe around Halloween. Sometimes I try not to wear masks, but even then, when I look back at those moments, I can see that there was still a mask. Try to think of your masks. Do you have any that you can think of? Mine are: “Happy-Go-Lucky” “Confidence” “Stupid” and so many more. Why do we ever wear them? Hiding is for people who have done something wrong, or for little kids (or for the young at heart) to play hide-and-seek, right? Someday, I hope, we are all able to rid off out masks and show off our real faces. Until then, we can thank society for the life we're living behind ourmasks.
