These are my friends
That is my family
This is my love
That is my enemy

They bring me joy
And make me laugh
Without them all
I’d emotionally starve

For as long as I remember
I’ve tried really hard
To fit in this social pie
Fearful of being cut apart

Who wants to be lonely?
No one
Who wants to be hated?
No body

We’re forced to wear a pleasing mask
Follow norms to be accepted
Layer after layer we hide ourselves
All for the fear of being rejected

With each one so covered up
We fail to hear the faint sound
Of the heart that beats inside
The soul that yearns to find its ground

Its like a mirror on our face
Reflecting what the world wants to see
Suffocating our true self
Hiding that inner beauty

Lets draw aside the countless veils
And shatter the mirror on our face
