The Unknown

All we know is that it hurts, it hurts to tell the truth

it hurts to be left alone in the unknown like a broken toy

or as if your date never showed up at your booth.

 

Being scared of something is what keeps people from telling the truth

scared of being noticed, scared of being forgotten, scared of being.

 

why?

Because we are memebers of the human race.

we dont tell the truth because we have to, or want to.

we tell the truth because we become these selfless beings that are unlawfull.

as the teachers become chalkfull and students become glass half full. 

they realize they have been lying to themselves.

 

This is what keeps us from pulling back the curtain,

Even we dont know who is behind it anymore.
