Playing hero!

It’s hell to deal with people,
With masks that are fake,
Lips, programmed to smile,
Chat with whom they hate.

I can nominate them for Oscars,
But they will miserably fail,
As they are the worst actors,
Locked inside the mask.

It’s funny to know the black sheep,
Yet, act friendly knowing,
He is behind all drama,
Playing hero, wearing a mask.

I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. BY ROBERT FROST
