Masks of Necessity by Raymond A. Foss
Grown child, where is your laughter?
Do you laugh, smile, cheer
in the song of the wind, the leap of the sun
the squeal of your little girl?
Seeing with her eyes the moments of life,
lost too often in adult ways
behind masks of necessity.
Reckless abandon and
absolute resolute mirth
Joy for the taking
from the true vine,
for there is a liberation
in him for us all
Grab hold for your life!
