Transparent

I’ve been buried in darknesses of lies to be protected from prying eyes for as long as I can remember.

I’ve been encompassed by all this darkness, I even forgot how I looked like.

But now I’m holding this torch of burning brutal honesty

I’ll ignite myself

I’ll burn off this mask

I’ll endure the flames of truth licking off the layers of lies

Now I know why it’s called brutal honesty

I stand here watch my forged life burn up in flames and reduced to ashes

All so you can see me glow in the dark

All so anyone can see me for my true self

All so I can see myself
