Scary Perceptions

Bare faces considered to be rude

What about the expensive masks that denude the truth

Sometimes the masks’ tasks the principles

Feelings are rehearsed; contributes to the chaos

Mirrors cower while reflecting the masked faces

How do children recognise true faces?

Stern faces harnessing their dreams and enthusiasm

The entire world shrinks after being castigated

Incoherent ties with the earth are disastrous

What does the future hold on to?

This masked reality and numerous false promises
