Is your soul perfectly round,

chiseled and shaped to perfection?

Are you not rough around the edges anymore,

and all your flaws have been smoothed?

Did they cover and caulk all the holes in it?

Sanded and brushed

so that no sin can seep in

and polished you with love

masking all the defects.

Have they taped all the corners

so that no vice can stick out?

No mistake or no fault of yours

can ever come out.

Does all this hypocrisy

give you the everlasting sheen?

even if the layers inside you

are peeling within.

Does all this work

and handicraft

makes you emotion-resistant?

Are you are unswayed by the

fight underneath?

Air dried by years of your existence

Moulded by your coats of experience

Did they glue up and saw all the intricacies? 

Primed you with love and its intimacy. 

Are you really sure

that now you are the epitome

of divinity?
