Most people love you for who you pretend to be … to keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretense … it’s true, we’re locked in an image … an act. And, the sad thing is, people get so used to their image - they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And, if you try to remind them, they hate you for it. They feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.
Thin wire fence
in the mind
dividing the heart
Your private selves may not have ever inspired or affected. Your private sadness will never be understood. Your private solitude will be ignored by even the most empathetic people, who believe that you must live more fully.
Not all of us were born grounded. There are a select few who, naturally or by their own will, must hold up mirrors against the human current.
The Lords, the lizard kings, the wanderers and Whitmans of life, I salute you.
Do you dare
deny my potency
you will fry
like the rest
