Behind the mask of the human condition
Lays a riddle beyond understanding
What courage it takes to live
The heart to give
A hand to a stranger in need
Life torn by disaster or pain
You see the faces
Blank with that look
You all know of what I speak
Like your life has been smashed
The pieces thrown about
Inconsequential,
Your life no longer recognizable
Like a mask on your whole life
The call goes out and heros arrive
Working through the broken buildings
And the helpless living
People struggling to just keep breathing
Yet,in that moment,for just then
Humanity reaches it's potentional for greatness
As the mask falls off
And the true human face of humanity is revealed
