8 WE WEAR THE MASK We wear the mask that grins and lies,We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes –To thee from tortured souls arise. This debt we pay to human guile;We sing, but oh the clay is vile With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,Beneath our feet, and long the mile; And mouth with myriad subtleties.But let the world dream other-wise, We wear the mask. 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.
