Poem – Masks

Do your eyes tell strangers

That you appreciate their kind gestures

When your lips are covered?

Do you see deeper into their souls

when we can only see eye to eye from far apart?

Or do you look away

As if everyone around you is carrying

The invisible foe we all fear?

We cover our differences with cloth

Leaving us all together as one

One race fighting the same battle

And although, I love that we come together

To save one another

I miss the individualities

That we cover

For a smile can say so much without a single word
