For tonight and tonight only Try on another face, a face of tomorrow a face of fantasy, a face of what could be
Breathe in childhood Twirl in the magic of youth For Halloweens are fleeting Years move swiftly Soon you will be asked to don one face for real
For tonight and tonight only Be a princess, a mermaid, A monster, a bird Become familiar with your faces and facets The realm of possibility So that when Halloweens are over You'll not hide behind a mask
But shine brightly with a youth well lived All the creatures inside you Not hidden but bursting forth with a flash of Trick or Treat eyes
Writing Prompt: What creatures hide inside you? What masks have you worn?
