    We want to be seen. Yet it scares us so much.

    Seen

    We trudge around the world
    Wearing disguises
    Through which we fear
    Others would see.
    So we raise thick walls,
    Draw our shiny masks,
    Patch up blistering wounds,
    Believing the world doesn't see.

    Yet the thing that we fear
    Is the thing that we hope for.
    For someone to climb the wall,
    For someone to see the soul peeking through the mask,
    For someone to notice the wound,
    To be known beyond the disguise.

    To be known,
    To be chosen,
    To be loved.
    We wear the mask
    Exactly to find
    Who in this world
    Wants us enough
    Beyond the disguise.
