Concrete As Your Convictions

The truth of the matter is this...
Your beliefs,
Are only as concrete...
As your convictions.

And if you are not,
Maintaining to keep your beliefs...
Thriving to stay alive,
What is it that you are wishing?

With your quick seeking of a hiding done...
To masquerade in hesitation,
Away from everyone.
Hoping someone will motivate your drive.
To falsely state the importance of your life?

Not only are your convictions lies...
Your disguises can be seen,
By those with clear and opened eyes.
It's unfortunate,
Your own are not opened up just as wide.
