4. Behind the Curtains

Saturday, May 21, 2016

 

Behind the Curtains 

It’s all wrong

the way they pray

to something they don’t believe in

‘cause all along,

their heads fill with songs

of the one conspiring against Him

 

Black robes,

modest smiles,

but oh,

don’t be fooled,

it’s just a ruse

Look behind the curtains,

if you don’t know what to do

because at night

there’re demons in their eyes

and they’re looking at you, too

 

At times I wonder

what it’d be like

to find perfection in my pride,

to see nothing but a lie

But I prefer

ignorance

over superficiality,

bitter reality

over sweet unreality

 

We’re heading straight for a cliff,

but only in the free fall

will we realize

we’re merely humans,

with just one chance to live.
