Behind the mask

To discover a living being Just behind the indifferent mask, You will have to remove make-up, Bare-faced climb up the scene. You will need to peel off the things You were taught when you were a kid, When you learnt how to hide your face And become half-alive indeed… To be nice and to carry a smile On your face…and to search for wealth, And amid “happy person” style Loose your natural inner self… I was taught just the same, if you ask… And since then changed a dozen of roles. I have tried on so many masks That I’m scared to get rid of those… In attempts to come back again To myself, to my divine being I sometimes feel so close to death… And so close to the secrets of living… (Ноябрь, 2007)
