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.
