The art of disguise

Yes ma, he yelled at your little one again

Oh what would you do?

Yes ma, he belittled your princess again

Oh but what would you do?

I see your eyes searching for truth

Trying hard to see if your little one cried last night

As if knowing the truth would make a difference

Everyone is so happy today, what a perfect family

Lets all close our eyes and pretend to not see its ugliness

Cuz we all want everyone to be happy together

The cost of which should not be voiced

So I have learnt it ma though you didnt teach me

You will never be able to tell my smile apart, it’s an art of disguise

What is this constant perturbation?

Of things left unsaid

Or that said too much

Of actions deemed wrong

Or not taken at all

Of choices being made

Or chances not taken

They left me hollow and sunken yet deeper

Everywhere I go, these voices follow.
