The question

In the stillness of the night we drop our masks and shake off our practised movements.

We no longer be who the world demands we be.

Gently we ease back into our own skin, itching in areas where our public self differs.

Amidst familiar surroundings we bring out our true smile, eye-enhancing smiles.

We know the rhythms of the day and the movements of the nights, a routine we follow.

We try to convince ourselves we are happy, yet chaos bubbles within.

We ask not the important questions, but feed ourselves with irrelevant answers.

So heed not the answers of ‘It was a good day’ or ‘We had fun!’,

And instead ask yourself, ‘Have you found what you are looking for?’
