Presenting ourselves 
Framed and flowery
Living our lives…
Concealing reality
Disguising the truth
We play our roles
Instead of releasing the tears
Hidden behind
Our pompous mask
We camouflage 
We make believe 
We camouflage 
Remain deceived 
Covering up
The flaws we loathe 
Painting over
The scars and holes
In our minds
And in our souls 
We camouflage 
Our hearts and hopes
Existence in pretense
Land of denial
Betraying ourselves
Refusing to acknowledge 
Deception disabling
Our very portrayal
Our reflection unable
To mirror
Any image to exemplify
Therefore, we camouflage 
Salvaging the pain
We try to exclude
Ourselves from any truth
The vulnerability 
We entertain
Decorating and adorning
Instead of offering
The beating heart
We hide within
The camouflage 
Just who we are
With human frailties 
Committing sin
Against ourselves
By always
To be someone else.
