To this day this is still probably my favorite piece of yours, especially because this was and still is something I can relate to extremely. Beautiful.

I have seen a lot of your other work and love your Nuzlocke challenge comics, but this is probably my favorite piece that you have done.

Strange how just this week we were talking about this in health class. We actually made masks to represent emotions and how we wear "masks" everyday... Interesting. And I like it.

This is a nice little comic.
And I can see this in our Community, It like how people see others...
A mask that is our lie, and We cover our face to hide our self's.
Its the saddest thing I think most of us can see.
Great job!!!

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It 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, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!

It was written by Paul Laurence Dunbar. A pretty awesome man who was one of the first nationally accepted African American writers in America.

This is pretty cool.
I remember seeing doing an animation with this premise.
But I can't remember the name of it.

I used to/sometimes fel this way, its, like the moment that you want to be yourself (our society is always like "omg just be yourself" ).
Yet, when you are truly yourself, and if your true self is not mainstream, or even beautiful to another's eyes, you are looked down upon,
and people call you names (wierdo, freak, attention-seeker).
And this just kills me inside, its like we are forced to live under a mask.
our society, sometimes is a hypocrite.
