Don't hide.
Hiding only
Causes dividing.
Don't believe the lie
That tells you
"It's better to hide."
It'll only make you blind.


Don't escape.
Sometimes you
Need to break
But don't escape.
It's never too late
To not be fake,
To show your face.


It can feel like
Running out of luck,
Sand slipping
Through your fingers,
Thinking it's too tough,
Believing you aren't enough
When you are in the rough.


Take off the mask
And make
The most of what
God created
Because he created you
To be authentic.
