People do not wish to see the other side of life.

the ugly side of me,

the ugly side of you.

 

Your family and friends only want to see you smiling

with pictures of your significant other,

father and mother, little brother;

dog and cat.

 

 

It’s hard to be anything more than skin deep

when everything is rated upon presentation;

 

I Don’t care how you look;

speak to my soul so I may truly see you

even if it’s painful;

I’m right here beside you;

 

I can be the one you need in this moment;

As you reach out to me with your soul bare:

If only I wasn’t thinking about my own shit.

 

Give something to get something;

I’ve been treated like shit

so here’s a bunch of shit,

and that’s why I’m muttering to the mirror,

 

“People do not wish to see the other side of life.

the ugly side of me,

the ugly side of you.”
