Musings : Masks

20140602-173328.jpg

Props
They’re all props


Propaganda
The society is pushing this propaganda
Consciously
Subconsciously
The battlefield of the mind
‘Better keep that mask on boy’
‘No one wants to see the real you boy’

The anomaly
We all need something
Love
Sense of belonging
Purpose
Something

Everyone walking around with their masks on
Expecting another to love them for the person they are behind the masks
Imperfect creation
Expectations that can only lead to disappointments

‘You gotta give something to get boy’
‘Nothing in life comes free boy’

Thanks be unto God for the free gift of salvation
Not by my works, lest I boast in myself

O the tears that fight to fall when I think of this
“I deserve this not!!!”
I have done nothing
And can do nothing
To deserve it

Thanks be unto God alone who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light. ✌️

    Food for thought:
    “Everyone walking around with their masks on
    Expecting another to love them for the person they are behind the masks”

    Such anomaly.

    Deep, insightful and rings oh so true especially in this New Age with a lotta folks adorning a facade and keeping up appearances! You did well to capture that to the boot! Steadfast, unconditional love’s from up above! Only God can fully pull that off, His grace and love….soo ‘ah-mazing’! 😃

    Thoroughly enjoyed this! Thumbs up! 😉😄

    Sincerity and “plainness” is rare in this world full of props.
