Thin skin

It is 

when we allow 

the broken voices

that whisper

inside our head

to grow twisted roots

under our thin skin

of common sense

that slowly strangles

our sense of pride

of being

what we try to hide

forever chained

behind a mask

where our tears reflect

our childrens pain

for not being

what we claim
