Life is a course of hiding
Disguising ourselves behind painted faces
Masking the truth
Veiling our face with hoodies
How do we know what you are like under all that covering?
Are you a complicated being?
Unsure of yourself
Difficulty in revealing the real self
In this life of obscuring ourselves
Is there any element that needs revealing?
Our true selves
How much would you reveal?
And lay bare?
Would you dare to?
Would life be more challenging without the veils?
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Venture into the unknown self
Gain a life of purity and love
Defying those masks
Revealing the true and real person
Are you brave enough?
To bare the real you
