The masks

Post by Booklover » Tue Apr 23, 2019 8:25 am

The mask

Check your mask at the door they are not needed here
They are so heavy it is nice to remove them for a while
So leave your masks for a while and rest in our safety
We will not judge
This is a safe place - a place to just be
Somewhere to be yourself
That self you hide from the world even from yourself
You do not need to hide here
Come and rest in the safety of this garden for a while
The mask is not needed here
So check your masks at the door and come in and learn to love the you inside again.

‘Check your mask at the door’ :) Great line!
Very nice, Bl.
Did you know that this is also an African ritual?
People hang their mask at the door so they don’t have to bring the whole world into their safe space.
I literally have a party mask hanging inside my door for the same reason.
You’re reminding me of its purpose!
