Why do we hide?

We hide to protect ourselves

We hide to run away

We hide because we fear people

Or we fear ourselves

We hide our truth

We hide from the lies

We hide our hearts

Our souls and minds

We hide to be strong

As fake as that might be

We hide from pain

And in the face of hope, flee

We hide our emotions

Or maybe from them too

We hide by choice

Or perhaps there is nothing left to do

So hide our eyes

Hide our faces

We hide our life

From all of existence
