All of us know it
But no one says it
Why do we hide it?
Why do we fight it?

We agree to this secret
and we don't care about it
But the truth is out there
Waiting to be seen

Do we tell lies?
Our infinite fears?

Are we afraid
To expose true evil?
In the face of the light
We close our eyes

In the pressure
And in the ease of ignorance
We choose to forgo
The human in ourselves
