Beyond My Doubts

What people don’t see is the society

Crumbling under the pressure of standards

Standards

As in requirements that need to be met in order for the simple human to be temporarily satisfied

Satisfied

As in feeling accomplished or simply finding happiness in the present moment

 

Behind the Curtain

 

The standards people make for themselves

In order to put on a normal show that’s not

 

Behind the Curtain

 

Will often reflect ulterior motives that will later be satisfying only to be burned by

The un-satisfaction brought by new standards and new motives which society demands

A simple peek

 

Through the Curtains

 

Just might be frowned upon

A simple peak

 

Through the curtains

 

One might find that conformity is the answer

Because nobody likes change

Nobody likes to feel like they don't belong

 

Behind the Curtain

 

In order to live up to society’s standards

Intimacy

Cursing

Becoming someone you’re not

That’s how society breathes,

How the girl with a tear stained face

 

Behind the Curtain

 

Conforming to the low standards to become accepted

But here I stand,

 

Behind the Curtain

 

With the Word of God in one hand

And my confidence in the other

 

Behind the Curtain

 

I can do nothing

But

 

Beyond the Curtain

 

My divergent purpose, not my “show”, will make a difference.
