A Different Halloween Read Count : 24

For some of our members 
Everyday is Halloween 
They ready themselves for their day’s agenda 
With  the emotional costume they use as 
pretenders

Their makeup may be a smile 
A laugh expressing frivolity 
They have many to choose any
Whatever it takes to hide their reality 
 
It can work for awhile as camouflage does
 But pain still exists beneath those role-playing “duds”
Eventually the mask will have to be removed 
To hide for a lifetime this act can’t improve

You can hide from all others 
In your creative ways 
But with the door closed behind you
at the end of the day 
You can’t hide yourself and have a good life to live 
A familiar phrase is the answer-
“Something Got To Give”
