We all wear the mask but how long can it last?
How long will it be before someone finds me out?
Will it be after I graduate from college?
Will I be discovered after I have my first born child?
How Long can I wear this mask?
When will they found out that I'm immersed inside of the world of idealistic social justice for man, land. and water?
How long can I project apathy while simultaneously nurturing my affinity for revolutionary ideology?
How long can I pretend that activism will feed my family?
How long can I appear confident, professional, and focused?
In reality I am impatient, hard-working, uncertain, poor, and a dreamer.
Some would go as far to say that I am foolishly faithful and unshakeably loyal, as if these qualities have no chance of translating into a fruitful future.
How can I disguise my moaning optimism?
Here is my epiphany.
I cannot, because
We all wear the mask, but it could never last....
