Broken mask

What do you say to the person with no friends

What can you tell that loved one

What tears are shed for the lost ones

What embrace is given to a open heart

What unspoken words are still buried

What does your reflection tell people

What reflections do you see in other people

What mask are you wearing today

Who is the person with no friends

Who do you tell you love

Who shed tears for you

Who embraced that open heart

Who received those unspoken words

Who is the mask reflecting

Why are you all I think about

Why can you not love me

Why don’t you see the shedding tears falling

Why does the embrace of a open heart push you away

Why do you wear that mask

Am I alsleep

Am I alive

Am I not shining bright enough

Am I not strong enough



Author: The Ordinary Compass

Hello and welcome to this collection of anecdotes from my years of ordinary moments and timeless memories. I try to share a positive message, as well as lessons learned which have helped me appreciate life. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple (positive) gesture. I write in the hope that I can make a difference and you as the reader will also see the possibilities that surround you, and as well that the little things do make a big difference. I’m originally from New Jersey, have traveled and lived on both the east and west coasts, and have happily been a Virginia resident for more than ten years. I have been married for over ten years; my wife is my anchor and has kept my compass correct. I have always been an individual who likes the outdoors. I like taking my time to think about the outcomes of situations. I enjoy philosophy and love science. I am no stranger to high adrenaline activities and love everything that revolves around water. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment, re-blog (with credit), or just read along! –Robert Konz.
