At last this feeling is finally back
Here we go, let’s have a blast
One step at a time from the first to the last
Let’s create memories worth calling the past
Allow these hardened walls to crumble away
Insecurities from a different time, the fears of yesterday
Let go of the pain you’ve come to know
Come in closer and let me show you
This is how the Universe has thrown you
A unique perspective aware of it all
Aware of the rise and of the fall
Here for a moment to haul in all these memories
Slipping seconds of new and old dreams
Fleeting senses in the midst of your journeys
Welcome to life, here is your mask
No defined purpose, no specific task
Welcome to the moment, one not to grasp
But to truly let go, feel absorbed at last
For this is what truly matters
Keep working and growing
Disregarding other factors
Choose a life that your heart can follow
Live it well and avoid that hollow sense of void inside
Where all you wish is to run and hide
You’re not alone, you have friends by your side
So stand up tall, become a hero to recognize
Resonate with emotions that continue to amplify
The sense of connection with all under our grand blue sky

“Welcome to life, here is your mask”. What does the mask represent?
A lot of my ideas have traces of my favorite thinker, Alan Watts. I’ll use his words to give context to my usage of mask here:
“The most strongly enforced of all known taboos is the taboo against knowing who or what you really are behind the mask of your apparently separate, independent, and isolated ego.”
Here the mask represents how we are grown with the notion that we are souls placed into bodies. The idea that we are different from the universe that surrounds us.
I say “Here is your mask” to signify how Society impresses this style of thinking as a status-quo.
In that case, I smack my mask onto the floor and stamp on it.
Heh, trying to visualize what that means is an interesting thought. To crush an illusion.
