“We wear the mask that grins and lies,/ If hides our cheeks and shades our eyes/ This debt we pay to human guile;/ With torn and bleeding hearts we smile/ And mouth with myriad subtleties/ Why should the world be over-wise,/ In counting all our tears and sighs?/ Nay, let them only see us, while/ We wear the mask./ We smile, but oh great Christ, our cries/ To Thee from tortured souls arise./ We sing, by oh the clay is vile/ Beneath our feet, and long the mile;/ But let the world dream otherwise,/ We wear the mask.”

                                     Paul Laurence Dunbar

~ John Lennon
