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.
