Camouflage

You cannot see my darkest secrets
That I hold in a web of lies
If I could admit my sins to God
Might you see me with different eyes?

For I am not who you think I am
I am a stranger to you all
Repent at my leisure?
I would throw it at the wall

Am I a true Christian?
Or do I pray in Hell
Am I an honest person?
Well, I promised to never kiss and tell

Like a snake who often sheds their skin
My identity I constantly have to change
Like moving a room full of furniture
My surroundings I repeatedly rearrange

My heart…my mind..my conscience
Resides inside this deceitful shell
One that’s hardened over the years
But I know I wear it well

I have to change the scenery
I crave a different view
The horizon is not far enough
Against a sea that is not blue

My heart contains no refuge
For your love to feel safe inside
Take no shelter from the storm
For you cannot trust the tide

So do not say you know me
For I do not even know myself
Never judge a book by it’s cover
As it lies there on the shelf

For many chapters have been written
Along this journey’s way
Many with no endings
But, that’s the price I’ve had to pay

Maybe one day I will understand
What makes me who I am
But I still have a heart I try to protect
Along this quest that I began
