Mask of a Stranger!



One day I found myself among strangers.
But they were familiar.
They have many more masks to wear.
They choose it depending on the occasion.

One day I walked among strangers.
I didnt have the mask to wear with them.
They looked at me as a stranger.
One even gave me his mask.

One day I spent among strangers.
They were familiar.
They laughed and cried using different masks.
I saw their heart beyond their masks.

One day I find myself as a stranger.
With strange people.
Now they are walking with me.
And they are learning from me.

Once a stranger, now a friend or an acquaintance, is so true. Your poem reminded me of “Stranger” by Billy Joel, one of my favorite music with interesting lyrics. “Did you ever let your lover see / The stranger in yourself?”
