My Fake Self

on

For the world I wear new smiles everyday
Each grin that I borrow, in tears is how I repay
I may look happy, but inside its grimace that lay
Covering my true self is now the only way!

There’s none who knows what goes on inside
A tough task it was but I managed to somewhat hide
Not a single man is there, in whom I can confide
Bit by bit the piled up gloom eats away my pride…

    This is so painfully relatable!! Though couldn’t have ever put it in such graceful choice of words. Loved it.

    It’s about truly wanting something. It matters what u put your heart and soul into. If you have put your heart and soul into dark then u will be surrounded by dark. If u open your heart to happiness and light no matter what u won’t have to pretend anymore
