Appearances

 

Appearances

We, who appear to the world,

are blind shadows

in a faded world,

wind whose form is only known

by its whistle against the disturbed air.

 

One instant our true character is clear,

but after,

we assume some new shape,

some simulated character

we try to convince everyone to know.

 

We who deceive the world

too deceive ourselves —

to think the mask we exhibit to the public eye

can’t be torn away —

or at the very least —

 

Become a two-way mirror

to see our true selves

hidden deep within.
