Masks

WE ARE A GENERATION WEARING MASKS

WE’VE FORGOTTEN OUR FACES

WE DON’T KNOW WHO WE ARE

OR WHO WE SHOULD BE

AFRAID TO SHOW ANYTHING BUT PERFECTION

AND REFLECTIONS OF OTHERS

WE HIDE OUR SCARS

THAT SHOW WHO WE ARE

YOU TAKE OFF THE MASK

YET CAN’T FIND YOURSELF

WE’VE LOST OURSELVES IN A SEA

OF PERFECTION

PERFECTION IS A LIE

WE CAN NEVER ATTAIN IT

SO WE GO TO FIND OURSELVES

BUT ALL WE FIND IS THE DISCARDED MASKS

OF OTHERS

WHAT ARE WE THAT WE HIDE

FROM EACH OTHER

ARE WE STILL HUMAN

OR SOMETHING ELSE

WE CAN’T SEE THE TRUTH BEHIND THE MASK

WE CAN’T FIND IT WITH THE MASK

HIDING FROM OURSELVES

HIDING FROM OTHERS

HIDING FROM THE TRUTH

SHOWING ONLY REFLECTIONS OF OTHERS
