Act as if you never knew,
Act as if you were unaware,
The world lives this way always,
Now please do not stare.
That's how you act wise,
Or they'll consider you otherwise,
Use words after giving a thought,
It is the council of the wise.
Can you walk out naked,
Of course not, so wear a mask,
I tell you or you'll be caught,
Cover up, it's a much-needed task.
Maybe in the garden of Eden,
Man learned the art to hide,
He realized he was naked,
For which God provided the hide.
Hide all that is offensive,
Hide all that falls out of line,
Hide all the feelings,
Hide even what is right.
Note:- This poem talks about how we all speak only what is acceptable. We hide our feeling and our thoughts to such an extent that they remain buried always.
