What do I see?

Look into the mirror what do I see
Do I see, the outer shell that masquerades as me
Look a little closer, stare into my eyes
Can I see an inner glow, flickering, burning, a surprise
Ah maybe that is my inner light
The me stripped of pretences, burning ever bright

Look more closely at others, past the different facades
Can I find the inner light behind their masquerades
Will I find a different person hiding there inside
Away from the projected face, with filters all applied
Society encourages conformity, that maybe makes us blind
Who is lurking underneath, waiting for us to find?
