Is This Our Ideal Life?

Everywhere we look
We see people wearing masks. 

Walking down the street 
We try avoiding everyone's path. 
We can't look anyone in the eye 
And act like everything's alright. 

We all live in fear, 
Like we're about to die. 
We're all freaking out 
About everything we hear. 

Shouting our doubts 
In everyone's ears. 
Trying to scare people 
Into fearing what we fear.

Is this sad sight 
how we should live our lives? 
Hiding in the shadows 
Afraid to be happy or to thrive. 

Is it good for our health 
when we are drowning in fear:
Stuck in depression,
Sadness, and despair? 

We can't even smile 
to the people we pass. 
They won't see it 
through our stifling mask. 

Is this our ideal life,
and if it's not then what is?

    What is your ideal life? I ask this question in today's poem, because the life that I am living right now is not my ideal life by any means. My ideal life is walking down the street and being able to smile to brighten a strangers day, to go where I please not worrying about what people say, and to live my life without restrictions. SO, I will ask the question again, is this your ideal life right here right now?
