“Through your piercing eyes,
Hiding behind your masked disguise
I see your cries, I see your pierced soul
You just want to run away and hide,
To fill yourself up inside
From all the pressure and lies,
Waiting for your ultimate demise
That leaves your mind stretched and
Enraged with no control
To see yourself as beauty unveiling,
Not something ugly and concealing”
