Putting On a Face

Putting on a face
    they say
        A brave one?
        A terrified one?
        A cynical one?

Who would ever know
    what’s right;
        what’s wrong?

Stone to stone
And dust to dust
Look at the universe
    and tell me:
        Why are we here?

Because nothing really makes sense;

Putting on a brave face?
I don’t think so;

After all
    a face is still a mask.
