What do we think

When you walk down the street And look that guy in the face What happens? I often think: What does he think? ‘cause many times we hide behind our masks And only show what we want people to think Far more exasperating and bewildering We also hide behind our real selves Like they were the usual masks Not truly distinguishing them from the facades And make overs Now consider: What do we think when we act different When we are not us Even more important: What do we think when we act us? What then are we? Consider this: As a man thinks in his heart So is he.

Sometimes when we walk down the street we are so busy pretending to be ourselves that we miss opportunities to love others.

True, and sometimes we lose ourselves while trying to be someone else
