Damage Control


Slanderous tongue,

the way they spin

your identity is absurd.

Paparazzi snap photos,

capturing images

of what appears real

but truth is distorted.

Put on your disguise,

cover up your eyes,

and show off

everything else.

Don’t let them see

what’s inside

only the pretty mask

that you don.

Flawless face,

your scars are showing.
