Behind The Mask

I don’t believe you represent

 

Anyone except yourself

 

I don’t believe the stories told

 

That you are who you say you are

 

That you are right, and I am wrong

 

That kids and carers don’t get along

 

That family is always best

 

 

I believe in honesty

 

The power of relationships

 

The future of humanity

 

And I believe in love


 

I’d like to think

 

That people watching everywhere

 

Find out who does and doesn’t care

 

And there’s no hiding place

 

For those who fall from grace

 

 

I believe in transparency

 

That fear drives secrecy

 

In those who hide their true intent

 

Behind a fake identity

 

I don’t believe what’s going on

 

Is best for anyone

 

Divide and conquer springs to mind
 

The damage done is plain to see

 

At social media on demand

 

 

And all the while behind the scenes

 

Harm caused is being disguised

 

By politicians who make the rules

 

Blaming those who criticise

 

You failed to see the plan was drawn

 

That you were just another pawn

 

You’ve served your purpose now you’re done

 

Take off the mask

 

Authenticity is all I ask
