Sometimes, I Wish

Sometimes I wish simple things
Like tearing away these masks
Which I wear so freely these days
To hide those tears and distress
Who are my constant companions,
Following me like my own shadow!

Can I just be myself for once?
Without needing to hide behind
The fixed smile which comes
And always available on standby?

Can I cry my heart out for once
Without feeling guilty about it,
Till all my tears are drained out
Along with all the heartaches?

Can I be that girl for once
Who beams her sunshine smile
To the world around
Just because she is glad today?
