Beneath it all

Flesh masks and fake smiles all around,

white lies and superficiality keep us down.

Beneath it all there is so much more,

If you don’t agree then you can walk out that door.

I wish I could see through you,

not like x-ray vision but even more,

deeper than that…yes,

into the soul.



Time to shine

Hiding in the shadows and afraid of the light,

uncertain of yourself so you doubt your own might.

Live how you like and fear no more,

express yourself and please don’t make it a chore.

Come out from the shadows and stop all the hiding,

shine like you know you can and sing a damn song.

Sing like you wanted to for so long,

shine like you have no sorrow,

and live like there is no tomorrow.

It’s time to shine!
