Why am I in this nightmare?
Fear, when did you show up?
Did you hear the rustling in my heart ?

Why do you hide?

Is it because you’ve changed your face?
Or are you now a trapped bird in a cage?
Or have you coiled into a snake
ready to strike?

Why do you hide?

Have you built a wall of protection?
Or become invisible – avoiding detection?
Why resist my intervention?

Why do you hide?

Why do you pretend to be anger?
Why do you wear the face of pride?

Why do you hide?

Why do you keep changing your disguise?
