Masquerade


MASQUERADE

You are not who you say you are
You are not who you claim to be
You wear a mask daily
You wear a mask around me

Smiling faces shown day-to-day
Yet hidden is the face of deceit
A beautiful fake masterpiece
You put together for me

Masquerade! Masquerade!
A beautiful show of deceit
But now I’m left to pick up the pieces
Because reality is what I now see

“Many wear masks that make them beautiful to the world, but what matters most is what is under that mask. Sometimes the best part of some people is that mask that they wear… while everything underneath is rotten.” –Monica Renata
