The Perfect Lie

 

 

So you've done it, haven't you?

You've finally hidden yourself.

And you wear that plaster mask on the outside.

You have become a doll,

a marionette,

to be controlled and you have changed,

But only on the outside.

You hide yourself from everyone.

Strangers,

co-workers,

Friends,

Family...

 

Look at you.

 

What have you done to yourself?

You show this smile and you play the part,

But if they look in your eyes,

They see the you.

The real you.

Your eyes don't light up like they used to.

And you dont smile like you mean it.

You don't sing to your favorite song,

My dear,

You don't even look like you.

So take off that blindfold that hides,

and show your self.

You are beautiful.

Let your self show.

Take down that perfect lie of a perfect life...

 

Just be you.
