Conquered by our worst fears
Created through deception
Separated in malice
Divided by a smoke screen

Hiding in disbelief
Failing to rise above
Hoping to be uncovered
Putting up pretenses

Drowning in echoes
Whispering sweet nothings
Crying on the inside
Betraying strength

Lauding our valor
Draping emotion
Caging molten in steel
Burning on the inside

Praying never to be
Witnessing a mirror
Concealing pain is easy
Facing reality ain’t

Thanking the smoke screen
Dividing us in our misery
