Screened Face

We screen our faces because we're scared.

We're scared because we can't face the fact that we can't do it to their faces.

We can't seem to understand it really hurts.

 

We screen our faces because it's "cool".

It's cool because it's funny.

We can't see what it does.

 

We screen our faces because it's popular.

It's popular because it's noticed, it's seen everywhere.

We don't know what the victims do.

 

Even if we could see the victim's lives, 

Would it even matter?

Even if we put that screen down,

Would it happen in real life?

 

Screened faces everywhere.

Fake faces everywhere.
