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
