The World is Full of Masked Individuals

Everyone tries their best
To conceal their nature
To hide themselves;
who they are.
Some out of pain,
some out of sorrow,
some out of rage,
or stress,
or desperation,
Everyone wears a disguise
Whether they are conscious of it or not.

Or suffering.
Afraid of what other people may
Or say
Or do.

Or social media
Or actions
Or work
Or words.

They immerse themselves so deeply'
In this lake,
this ocean,
this whirlpool
They forget about the real world
About their own lives
About the things they believe in
About what they truly want.

They believe so greatly

society expects them to be.

Think they should be.
