There is a side of everyone that's all too rarely seen
but when it does appear to us
we wonder where it's been.
for some it's good, others bad, yet others just surprise
sometimes it draws us closer
and others exposes lies.
the ivory towers of what we perceive, too often, as being true
come crashing down quite often when
this other face shines through.
it doesn't matter how much we think we've covered up that side
we find it being shown to those
to whom we'd rather hide
for in the end the truth will shine more brilliant than our sun
a story shall be told which reeks
of all the wrongs we've done.
