I See His Mask On Video.

There is this man on the internet. He is out of place with his mask. With a hint of pain, he tells funny stories. All that he is he has told us on video, all he feels and desires are there for the viewing pleasure of any of us. But his mask is always there and so out of place.
He tells of many things done and dreamed of. From behind the pain he speaks of love and harmony. Soon he may come to a place in life where he can no longer walk in the sun and enjoy the world as he once did. He will always create in any way he can; it is the way he was born.
In his mask we see what we want to see. It reflects many of us as we see his videos. On here we all have this mask. Showing desire, we hide the world we live in. We know so little of what we talk about. At the end of the day we put away the mask only to see it in the mirror anyways.
He's a man of many sides and many colors. He wants the world to live as one with no trace of hate; yet he knows that this will never be, as we for the most part we see the world for what we can take. If it where up to us the world would have no hunger, war and walls. But at the end of the day it is as it always was.
Some times in the night when we cannot sleep he talks to me. He speaks of many things and many places that may not be real. He gives me hope from behind his mask and lets me know we all have one as well.
But now I think is it him or me that I see.
