Warring Beings: We Are All At War

We are all at war
Fighting battles inside of us
Even if in others eyes
we stand as the very definition of peace
Our worst fear is
being seeing for who we really are
make-up and constumes down
Bruised, cursed, enfeebled
Our greatest worry is
being known for what we really are
When striped bare
of what glitter we wear
Troubled, despaired, dying
Warring brings!
