Oh what tangled webs we weave,
when first we practice to deceive.
Ourselves, our hearts, and then our soul,
striving just to keep it whole.
Then fear creeps in to blow apart,
the bandaged pieces of our heart.
We think we’re good,
believe we’re strong,
but Masquerading all along.
Only God can heal the pain,
Help us learn to dance again.
His perfect Love unravels all,
and all the masks removed will fall.
