pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
the one who wants to
but can't socialize when working
pay no attention to the boy in the closet
who stays there
because his father beats him like he's lost it
pay no attention to the girl who draws her face on
it isn't really her
got the stilletos and the lace on
pay no attention to the woman standing tall
who doesn't need a man,
she has herself after all
pay attention to them without their masks on
so that they can get themselves back
their identities are half gone.
if you want it,
and get it,
as an introvert I wish this phrase wasn't invented.
it can be hard to go out and talk to people,
it can be uncomfortable
too hot to keep cool
they want the some thing as you
love and affection,
but the world teaches them the only way to get it's through perfection.
liking the opposite sex,
having a fly outfit
a nice body in a skin tight dress.
growing up poor,
you learn to take every opportunity that comes
to the door.
so when you make it to the top,
you think you deserve the best and you won't stop.
so you disguise yourself as the best
and put your front to the test
all you need is you and yourself I get it.
but now your shoe is too big and not even you can fit it.
