Hell Bent

Loitering behind rose colored sheers,
Assessing the masses of fellow peers
Disillusioned from a chaotic world,

I ponder what seems quite unclear,
that no one is as they appear.
Shrinking from insensitivity hurled

I choose to stay behind my walls,
As the degradation of society falls
Accusations maim a fragile self-worth

I stumble through life with flaws intact
Aware of something inside me I lacked.
Musing why I exist on an egotistical earth.

It took so long to finally comprehend,
Too belated to make an amend
It's a common social addiction.

Conclusions attained from assertation
A novelty outdated for consideration.
Society too hell bent on self-infliction.

    "no one is as they appear"......often too is a lesson never to be too envious, jealous, naive', ....I suppose everyone has their own demons to hide behind the mask they least to some extent.
