Shedding the Smiling Mask

She surfaces with a smile so wide,
A mask that hides what’s deep inside.
A facade that’s worn day by day,
To keep the truth so far at bay.

But falseness only goes so far,
Pretense can’t hide who we are.
The time has come to shed the guise,
And let authenticity arise.

With vulnerability on display,
Honesty can lead the way.
Sincerity and genuineness too,
Can help us find what’s real and true.

No more concealment or disguise,
It’s time to let our souls arise.
For only in exposure can we find,
The peace and freedom of an honest mind.
