Behind the Curtain

Mon, 08/11/2014 - 23:23 -- khari14

the curtains open 

Put on your  make-up 

Wake up.  You live in a world that demands perfection 

rejection is inevitable for anything other than the average tide

fitting in is adorned the people of difference are cast aside 

Ah but behind the curtain is free from perfection's constant obsession 

Where you are free to be unique

speak on what you love,

sing to the heaven above

many are behind the curtain with you

they respect the queer so they lift you

hiding what we have leaves regret

afraid of new but we would never fret

If we could just

Take off our make-up 

and just let

the curtains open
