Don’t all gifts come in coloured wrappers?
Wrapping the gifts ensure that whatever lies inside is a surprise, an enigma…it is to be unraveled only by the person it is meant for. For the onlookers, it is a parcel which they measure up with their eyes and try hard to fathom what is concealed, but fail most of the time. The human nature has this queer habit of wrapping things too beautifully-even its own self. If one is not meant to see the truth, they won’t be able to. We only see what we’re allowed to see.
The irrational side of human psyche judges other humans like the parcels, not caring about the content that matters, drawing unfounded conclusions based on what the eye tells them.
Facades are created to mislead the beholder, it is created by those trying to project themselves as someone they are not or to be accepted. Because of the bigoted individuals who set norms for being “acceptable” in society, many have to lie through their teeth, force their facial muscles to smile, cage away their true selves.
Facades are not just food for the superficial souls-they are also escapades for those who have been led to believe that it is wrong to be themselves to be loved.
