Is This The Way?




Is this the way of living?
Wearing a constant mask over your face?
To hide what bothers you
because it might offend someone?
To put up a false smile
when all you want to do is cry?
To watch silently,
the destruction of the storm,
tell  yourself -
"What could I have done? I was helpless."

Is this the way of living?
Wearing a constant mask over your face?
Call your shallow living as living carefree;
Not trying to change anything -
Accepting what comes your way.

Is this the way of living?
If yes,
I wish I could take a voluntary retirement from it.

  2. The pic goes well with the poem.
    So many questions there.
    Sometimes, some questions have no answers.
    Sometimes, it has to be that way.

    Hi Amrit, 

    I know, unfortunately, this is how everything works and most of us do it the same way, however there are times, phases in life when we get fed up of the mask because we begin to feel that the mask is taking over the real face of ours!

    Hi Venus,

    This time I purposely searched for the picture on Google ...
    Loved this so much that I decided to use it and have even written to them about the same.

    I know, few questions do not have answers but that does not stop us from asking. 
    Unfortunately, even if it does suffocate us, we have to accept that this is how it is going to be.

    Yes, even I do, have to. However, there are times when I do not like it, the times when I feel that the mask is taking over the real face, the real Arti that I am.

I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.
