Beneath the Mask


Keep young by smiling beneath the mask……..

Like time tells, I do wonder when I will once again see that smiling you

That amorous expression that makes me crave for numerous

Your Duchenne smile is a gesture that shares or donates pleasure, happiness and amusement

A smile starts on the lips spread to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly,

but a good laugh burst forth the soul and bubbles around

The world has experienced a rowdy scowl on its face

Your beautiful face now hidden from the world

The face of a depressed man all alone

I wear a mask to reduce the cold I feel in this Winter/Harmattan

I mask to protect me from this dreadful disease

Wonder if you still smile like before, that smile is now between your lips and the mask only

Beneath the mask hides a face exhausted of life challenges 

My mask keeps all insecurities concealed

The price of a frown is to age but to get young is shared happiness

Let’s keep smiling even beneath the Mask.
