(In) Authenticity

We all go around faking
Laughing at the authentic
Authenticity scares us
Falsity consoles us

We think we’re better
Our true self knows we’re not
We think we’re wiser
Our intelligence knows we’re not

We go around signalling virtues
Longing for our ego’s rescue
When reality hits us
Our Naked self terrifies us
