POEM # 30
The day before tomorrow…is today…
Your mask of anticipation builds.
Excitement electrifies the air.
What will you be?
What have you been before?
Your inside self begs to come out.
Today, your tomorrow will be revealed.
Think of it…
Why do you want to be another,
Or, do both of you reside inside together?
One day to be the other.
Let it be known…
Your true self – your alter ego –
Will come forth.
A subconscious serenade to
What could have been.
You put on your Halloween masquerade of reality…
It hides nothing…It shows everything.
Your true identity is loosed into the here and now.
One night to reveal…One night to peel away
At your brick walls of respectability.
Go forth in your splendor…fooling no one.
Your psyche revels in it’s one night to be true.
Don’t be frightened, it’s only you…
Your innate personality shows you the way.
This one night to surface. They’ll understand.
You’ll squelch, and hide, and deceive yourself.
When the revelry is over, the night turns to normalcy and,
You’ll be the deceiver of your soul again.
Hiding away your alter ego for another night like this…
A future into what future may come.
You quiet your soul’s yearning for release from polite restraints.
Your wild wants out…it wants to take over.
Society would frown, and put you down…
You must fit in, you’re required to blend…
Until this one night – Halloween Night –
When your mask shows truly what you’ve been.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
