HIDDEN BEHIND A MASK


masks

Oh how sad it has come to be
Hidden behind a mask are we
Unable to reveal our identity
Stuck away where no other can see
Is the unique personality
Self preservation has taken place
Because of the past we change our face
Afraid of rejection, judgment or scorn
Before the world a mask is worn

Crying out from underneath
The soul is yearning to be free
Free of wearing another face
For this mask has taken its place
In the quiet of the night
Tears fall because of it’s plight

In secret places solace is found
There true self is finally unbound
Free to be just who you are
Without fear or alarm
Flying, the soul dances again
Wishing this time would never end
Treasuring the moment for we know
This glorious time soon must go
When once more we will conceal
Behind a mask just how we feel

Isn’t it true God made us to be
Who we are individually
Why can’t we accept each other
That we are different one from another
Yet we keep the world at bay
Knowing there’s no other way
For revealing who we really are
Can, and has led to many scars

Forgive us Father for being so cruel
And for breaking a golden rule
That speaks of loving one another
Accepting our sisters and our brothers
Not for who we think they should be
But for their God-given individuality
Judging isn’t what we’re called to do
For Jesus, that is up to you
Let the mask fall from our face
Replaced by God’s tender grace
In our eyes let others see
God’s love for unique personalities

  1. I find this a terribly sad thing, that so many in the body of Christ hide behind the mask of…what? I suppose we all have different masks that we put on at different times. To take the mask off requires vulnerability, and that is a scary thing! May the body of Christ rise up and be courageous in the fight, daring to be…that’s all. Just daring to BE, not striving to attain anything artificial, anything that we think man wants from us, just listening to the only Voice that matters, and moving in harmony with Him. Oh, wait…I think that’s called worshiping in spirit and truth, lol! Thank you, beautiful friend. Date: Thu, 23 May 2013 13:56:40 +0000 To: lindabrown.1960@hotmail.com

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.

    Outstanding Blog!
