As you go about your daily routine

And make your way through life,

Do you feel as if you have been seen?

Or are you just a shadow of dark strife

 

Do they see you for who you really are?

Or do you hide the facts from all who pass

So they can only see your features from afar

Because you believe yourself below their class

 

I hold my head up high and walk with stride

No-one knows the true me as I walk past

The persona I try so very hard to hide

The one that would make them run so fast

 

The smile I flash is my weapon of choice

The only thing that gets the guard down

And I slit their throats before they can voice

Shhh it’s all better now, no need at all to frown

 

You see it’s not what you see that causes the pain

It’s the unguided thought that I am someone of trust

Your first impressions were of fear and were right again

Be guided by your instincts and not, attraction or lust

 

You now lay in the arms of the personification of fear

And there was hope for you if only for the smallest while

But you made eye contact and let me get near

Because the darkness lives behind the cover of a smile
