Be Real

Inspired by a youth event at my church called Be Real.


4. Taboo

This society shuns abnormality,
 Prescribing drugs or a hospital stay
 To treat minor maladies
 And separate it's citizens.

A taboo subject
 Acknowledged but not spoken
 Forcing many to hide,
 To bury their struggles and concerns.

Deep down we're vulnerable,
 Crying out with intense pain
 Yet no one can know
 For fear of society discovering.

We have to be perfect
 And maintain our reputation
 We have to appear normal so we fit in,
 Even if it's all an act, a fake image of ourselves.
