Life is a masquerade party

What does life seem to you at different phases of your life? Things that you experience everyday, what does it feel like? To me, it feels like a masquerade part where everyone is wearing masks.

Life is a masquerade party

Whip out a mask, place in on your face.
Off you go, join the party.
All kind of colourful masks surround you.
Left and right, looking for the one that captivate you.
Pick one, ask for a dance, and off you go.
A melody, the duration you spend with a partner.
Music starts, both will sway to the melody.
Music ends, both go their separate ways.
From the start to the end, never removing your mask.
Maybe occasionally changing mask to attract new partners.
But, never removing it even if you are having a break.
At the end of the party, the mask finally gets removed.
But you will never meet any of the dance partners again.

It is just like life. From the moment you step out to the reality world, you put on a mask. In different situation or faced with different people, you will put on a different mask. Sometimes even when you are at home or rest, you are still putting on a mask. For so many various reasons, the masks follow us throughout our life. The only time when we are real and without our mask is when we are on our deathbed. That is the time where we are real but we never get the chance to show it to the people in our life.

What are your meaning about life? Let's share about it!

For some it is, but we don't really know who we are, until you take off the mask. Life is so wonderful, when we accept who we are. Thanks, a wonderful post.

All the world is a stage and we all play a momentary part in it. We have to put up a show but being truthful makes our life so much better - siva
