Who’s Hiding

Regina Puckett

I always hope for the best

But people seldom pass the test

They are rarely who they pretend to be

They’re always more than you see

They hide their hard hearts and dark souls

So no one ever really knows

What’s behind their smiling eyes

Until you’re buried underneath their lies

Until they hand you back your broken heart

Until they crush your spirit beneath their feet

Until the charlatans steal, con, punch, and cheat

So I’ll watch my back until I know for certain

Who’s hiding behind that smiling curtain
