Do we ever really know

Just exactly who we are

When we look at others

Do we see who they might be

Or is it just an image

Divorced from reality

People all put on an act

As they travel through their life

Can you get to know someone 

Is it an image that will last

Do you ever wonder whatโ€™s hidden

Inside a photograph 

Is the smile genuine

Or is it just and act

A two dimensional representation

Of what others do expect
