Let us take off our masks, you and I.
Let us dance with abandon. Let us laugh too loudly. Let us cry if we need to.
Let us speak from the heart. Let us say what we mean. Let us learn to listen.
Let us not worry about the judgments of others, who may point and stare, and, God forbid, laugh.
Let us stand boldly before the world, newly hatched chicks blinking into the brilliant sunshine.
Let us act like children
Let us allow ourselves to be seen.
Let us throw down our masks, you and I.
You go first.
