He will get you through it.

The Masquerade

taking things
in stride
what is it
you hide
behind the mask
you wear
what's the secret
you can't bare
your empty
gives away
the answer

Ahhh but laughter is so good for the soul regardless of what we can't bare :) Very nice my friend :)

i love how you say so much in so few words. I really enjoyed reading this and the emotions it provoked.

TALON September 14, 2010 at 10:28 PM  

"empty laughter" - it is very revealing.

Really enjoyed this!

Sherry Blue Sky September 14, 2010 at 11:14 PM  

Yes, I know this feeling, of laughing to cover the pain that is too intense to reveal. Very well said, Bing. And keep smiling, we love your smile!

Sandee September 14, 2010 at 11:28 PM  

Laughter is the key to almost everything. Excellent Bing.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

behind the mask says it all...at a point the actor will want to get a life...at a point the mask will be unveiled but sad to see people see behind the mask despite all the empty effort to hide. Nicely done!


Bing (PinkLady) September 15, 2010 at 5:48 PM  

what beautiful insight, emmanuel! thanks for your lovely comment.

brokenpenwriter September 15, 2010 at 11:37 PM

So many of us live behind the mask... it is a safe haven, rather than challenge the world full speed!
Bing I did not do potluck this week I am just visiting to see what some others did, this is quite lovely.

Bing (PinkLady) September 16, 2010 at 6:16 AM

Loved this one, pink lady!!
Dark, mysterious and delicious!
So befitting the potluck theme!! Thank you so much.....

Bing (PinkLady) September 22, 2010 at 5:07 PM  

carrie, thanks so much for the appreciation.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
