Author: M B J Pancras
It hides me from reality;
All my goings and comings, full of falsity,
It seems the air is false; folks’ breath, untrue,
The educators teach me ‘guise’ philosophy,
The ‘government’ enforces ‘smokescreen’ laws,
Kith and kin express ‘masquerade’ kinship,
Traders on the verge of their sale with ‘camouflage’ discounts.
Life on earth wears masks of multi-coloured deigns,
I survive with the mask of pretension;
Yea, the mask of pretension preaches ‘immortality’ on earth,
But I know I will leave this court,
Yet, I am forced to wear the mask of affectation,
And till I wear off the mask of affectedness,
I shall be a citizen of this mortal world.
But can I seek the way of Truth,
And wear of this mask of artifice?
Yea, there’s a the Way ----
The Way to Eternity ----
The Lord Jesus Christ.
