Why do we hide behind a filter veil?
Trapped inside the acceptance jail.
Bare ourselves for the world to see,
Yet hide in a mirage of lies
The lies have become we.
Most not real
Most a filtered lie,
To scramble to fit in while what really matters slips
Slips and passes us by.
They act only as a highest peak
All of which are far too steep,
Do not become one of the acceptance sheep.
So why attempt the climb that is not real
Or attempt to slow this social circus wheel?
To your very core,
Not a version commanded by these Social matador.
