"Eventually you hope You'll be able to throw it away. But you wear your mask in sorrow and sit and wait until that day." Very nice flow and a good message of hope. For it is when hope enters into our thoughts that the mask will begin to crumble. James
I think we are all guilty of wearing masks and while they protect us and hide what is fragile inside sometimes we become too dependent on them as you have shown in your poem, a great poem. made me think, thanks.

~Blondie,...this is a wonderful recognition of what eventually has to come. You show your courage even just writing about it. Oh these masks they shield us from dealing with the reality of some situations, but really,...what's underneath probably has the strength somewhere to take it face on. *Have strength,...you're a great writer, I enjoyed this. *Peace.
The mask is a necessity to cope at times, but only when we take it off can we truly face things and hopefully have the strength and will to be ourselves. Hope that day comes for you. I am sure you will be a better person for it in the end. Great piece.
