mask

remember life brief candle by william shakespear? i only remember the first few verses. there are these 2 lines: "Life's but a walking shadows, a poor player, That struts and frets upon the stage". I dont care the meaning behind these verses for long i have forgotten the the message of the poem but yes we all are actors that perfom on the stage. a stage big enough to fit everything in it, the world. we try to act as best as we can to please others. we put on mask to fit the role that we are playing, to fit in the story line. the mask itself cover our true face. people dont have to know who we really are as long as they're content with the acting. we perform really well in this scripted story with our performance. we tell lies to satisfy demands and to get away from troubles for it doesnt matter because they dont know who we really are. we make up more lies to cover the lies that we make. and more lies coming after that. but when can we remove the mask? when we are on our own? when we are in another world created by ourselves? or is that mask actually our face? we wear the mask most of the time and only remove it sometimes or should i say we only wear a mask, which is a personality that we want to become when we are alone? 

we are who we are. how we live our life will show who we are. the mask is just something to comfort our heart. it doesn't exist actually. we can deny as much as we want but still, what we do, show, act define what we are. 

living with lies is just too much hassle. I am tired of living with acting just to please people. telling people lies will only increase the burden of life. why dont we just look at ourselves. get a mirror...seriously look at yourself in the mirror. look what is the bad/wrong thing that you do. try to fix it and you don't have to tell lies anymore. if you cant fix it try to get help. 

oh btw, i hate playing bluff, or kencing. easiest way is to keep on being honest.

life. we grow up and then we die. why waste it?

  1. unfortunately, this is not an idealistic world.

    Some people take 'telling lies' as cool.
