We All Wear Different Masks
We all wear different masks for different reasons. Some masks to protect our heart, some to tell a story to project to others, some to portray an image for others to see, some to hide lies from the truth and some to just put on for work. We all have them. This is my mask and a collaborated poem with my writer friend Thomas D. Craig.
Painted mask with shiny teeth
Torn and shattered I hide beneath
Dark and alone with no light
I struggle to keep my fight
I lie with a smile and shaded eyes
Pretending not to see the truth inside
Wrapped in armor fully constrained
No one knows my deepest pain
Masks of image for others to see
I am shackled and never free
Masks from judgment to fit in
I am drowning trying to swim
Scarred and wounded I am now centered
Vulnerable and free the light enters
Scarred and wounded I am fine
Authentic and true my divine shines.
The Beauty Beneath
The ocean has my heart and I care about it a lot. It makes me feel terribly sad that parts of the ocean is dying along with all its sea life such as plants, fish, turtles, sharks, and so on. Everything about the ocean is precious and beautiful.
I like to express myself through my art work to spread awareness relating to Earths environmental issues. Its important to me to spread this awareness and help other get educated on what is going on.
