All The World is a Mask

Sometimes I wonder if it is possible to live a day just for myself.
Without hypocrisy. Speaking exactly what I please. Being brutally frank without camouflaging my thoughts with niceties.Choosing not to laugh at a joke which is far from funny, but have to because of politeness. Have the guts to ask a few questions to the politician who knocks on the doorstep asking for votes, instead of nodding my head skeptically. Remove the mask which shields my dark secrets.
Make paper boats when it is raining, irrespective of wherever I am.


Well, if I can deceive myself, I can deceive anybody.

beauty is in the imperfections ... everthying that's perfect is boring...

@Sundeep..but isn't man always striving for perfection?but more than perfection, it is the pretence that one puts on in life..

the sad thing is everyone you ll react without the mask, without the camouflage - will be wearing a mask, camouflaged and faking life. but, atleast you ll be satisfied.. such a life is possible with someone who you totally trust.Trust is the word.

@Srini..Yes.., with someone you trust, you can put down the mask with the trust that the other person will too:)

atleast to your friends (be careful who are your friend) you can be frank and discuss your feelings without a mask or cover..
