Standing up, day after day.
thinking one thing and doing another.
Questioning why one side showed itself to others,
the other subsisting on secrecy.
Unsure why one was accepted,
one seen with confusion and scorn.
Shaking hands, smiling,
following society in an odd dance.

the kind that defines a person?
The misplaced sense of duty,
causing abandoned morals, replaced with practicality.
An ever widening gap, conjuring up the Walking Contradiction,
the ever bewildered Individual.
