Fascia

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The thick layers of skin hide the real person behind it

Yet we pile it on and on because it is the wall we want

It shields all the insecurities that we dread to reveal

The fear of who we are is what leads to so much pain

The battle is to subdue the true soul and walk around

with a façade of who we think we should be and in the

end the world is an acting stage where the best actor

receives the enviable crown with a gaping hole in his

heart for the deceit of others is well known to his soul

Did you see the real you peeking behind the façade?

At the end when we take off the mask deceit is all that

glares comically at us for we were a joke all along
