Fools Of Today

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?”
