Personal Addition 12 - Masks

I came across this poem and absolutely fell in love with it. It sends such a powerful message about being true to yourself and not trying to hide. Your unique or "different" qualities are what make you who you are, and rather than covering them up, you need to embrace them. You never know what you might be missing out on.

  1. Shel Silverstein is a genius. The fact he can hide such deep and powerful meanings in childish poems is amazing, and his illustrations are instantly recognizable. If there's anyone you should look up to as a writer, it'd be Shel for sure. Did you read a lot of him when you were younger?
