See The People

See the people

And the masks they wear

Hiding their pain from one another

Lest anybody stare

 

See their painted smiles

And porcelain expressions

Under ever increasing pressure

Weakened from exertion

 

See the cracks now forming

And flakes of paint falling

The scars they tried to hide

Now coming into view

 

See the way they feel

The sun upon their face

Fresh air upon neglected wounds

They thought time would erase

 

See them smiling now

For real, not pretend

For only when you shun the mask

Can your scars finally mend
