The Mask We Wear

Honesty is a mask of lies
Told by weak people
Too afraid to admit
Mistake or fault
Fearing judgement
We chain ourselves to a wall
Ready for torture.
Pleading, “May I have another”

We are a masochistic species
Addicted to pain
We crave it
We worship it
We aren’t truly happy
Unless we’ve suffered

Through pain
Truth is discovered
Though truth is a chaotic trickster
One must be wary
The dark dreamer schemes
The truth you seek
May not be the truth you like
