Are you a fool?
Does your mouth spit fire and bile
Your soul is full of guilt
Your speech fuelled by empty vile.
Do you recognize your face?
The one God gave you
You cover the marks of your birth
Lips painted red, eyes shine blue.
Do you know the silhouette you hide behind?
Empty skeleton, pulsing heart
The blank canvas of society
You’re dying to fit the part.
Picture perfect doll
Camera lens, filter shades
Slowly hiding yourself away.
People do their best to blend in cloud
But you aren’t as shallow as the stream
Strip it back
Show them you are more than their dream.
One day you will see
Tiring aches and not enough time
You sign your name on paper
But whisper “who am I?”
