Hiding the Truth

Life is your painting

Paint brush in hand you add small details

Painting with colors you love

Covering up the old painting

The one you dislike

Skating over the ruff parts

Rendering them smooth blue

A fantasy

A fairytale life

An endless sky of promise


A place far from the picture on the original canvas

Far from the truth

Living a life that is not true

A hoax

What you think life should be

As the years pass on though

The new paint coat begins to flake

Showing bits of the old

The old painting

Your real life is being revealed

Bit by bit

For no matter how hard you try

Gloss over life

You cannot hide the truth
