Masquerade – Why We Carry On This Way

While recording a Mockingbird Song (attached) with the Carpenters called This Masquerade I had the idea to write a poem for this blog about masquerade being the reason why we carry on this way – simply not knowing who we are or who anybody else really is. What follows is the result of that effort. I hope you like it.

Masquerade – Why We Carry On This Way

Just look in the mirror into familiar eyes

See then if even you can now see through

What so long you practiced till even you

Have come to believe your own disguise.

In a favorite of mine movie,

The Long Kiss Goodnight,

The amnesiac heroine has a secret

That draws her back into the fight.

This is all our own story

For we indeed have come here too

To dispel our own inner darkness

And all disguises to see through.

Look deep beneath the surface

First of your own then those you know

The truth of who you, me, we all are

Is bound in us and determined to show.

Your friend and fellow traveler,

David White
