Enter – Day 1, November PAD

E-ither we wear masks, or we don’t
N-othing depends on us, some say
T-otally everything’s in our hands,
E-xplain others
R-ather loud.

All we do is choose a side
without much prior knowledge
unprepared for verbal fights
(which often turn quite physical, in fact).

And then, once chosen, our side
marks us.
It’s a statement.
Slowly, it grew into
a point of values,
an expression of identity, beliefs,
and what not – you name it.

Enter the protection mask!
