We Wear The Mask.............




June 27

WE WEAR THE MASK by Paul Laurence Dunbar.We wear the mask that grins and lies,It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,-This debt we pay to human guile;With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,And mouth with myriad subtleties.Why should the world be over-wise,In counting all our tears and sighs?Nay, let them only see us, while We wear the mask.We smile, but, O great Christ, our criesTo thee from tortured souls arise.We sing, but oh the clay is vile Beneath our feet, and long the mile;But let the world dream otherwise, We wear the mask...Reference:Paul Dunbar
