Mask for the day


It was early morning, the sun just began to enter her room through the open glass door of balcony. The sun rays made beautiful patterns on the floor when it filtered through the warm toned net curtains. Another day, another run to finish her routine life. She woke up and walked towards her mirror. She could see many masks and she need to pick one for the day before she got out from her comforting nest….masks of smile, anger, astonishment, surprise, wonder, lustful, sad, funny, mockery, crying, pride, boastfulness, numbness. She tried to recollect which one she wore previous day, she can’t even recollect it. She was laughing at herself for a moment. Finally, she decided to go with her rarest pick: the mask of SMILE!
