Literature Text

What wondrous lies one may find

hidden behind loving smiles,

behind tall tales and charms and wiles

that, all in all, will rob you blind

of your silly heart, your foolish mind.

And then you’ll wonder how it was

so easy; was it just because

the life you live is so confined

that you believe in every kind

word that might be uttered or

sweet nothings make you so secure,

you leave yourself, your fate, consigned

to those who would be so inclined

to hurt, to scar, to disappear

without a trace? Now so we’re clear,

listen close, you weren’t designed

to be half-loved or left behind.

So steel yourself, you aren’t defined

by others that you lose or find.

Just something I learnt recently. 

Cheers~

Reminds me of a quote from V for Vendetta: “There is a face beneath this mask, but it isn't me. I'm no more that face than I am the muscles beneath it, or the bones beneath that.”

The face isn't inherent, it's what we make of it. To an extent we could say this about our outward selves.
