And we hide

We live in a deceitful world
Of comforting illusion
We hide our true intentions
While we revel in confusion

We use a mask too often
We conceal ourselves through fear
Of showing who we really are
Even from people we hold dear

Or to just prolong deception
For those we wish to expose
Or to bring us comfort from pain
That insecurities help grow

We use it sometimes just to hide
From things too painful to accept
Like all the sadness and the hurt
That makes us feel inept
