Playing Act

Put your polished smile 
Give your irresponsible reason
I'm good at being a fool
But inside you don't know 
How wicked I could be

Make everyone believes your plan
Blame to another people if failed
I'm good at being oblivious
But inside you don't know
How observant I could be

Tell a great tales
Sprinkle it with lies
I'm good at listening
But inside you don't know
How murderous I could be

Spill out your secret
Lower your guard in front of me
I'm good at being a loyal follower
But inside you don't know
How traitorous I could be

Reach victory no matter what the way
Get the finest jewelry for anyone stare
I'm good at flattering
But inside you don't know
How defiant I could be

Order me like someone important
Be the main actor in your story 
I'm good at being obedient
But inside you don't know
How loathing I could be

Show your fake kindness
Wear your sympathy mask 
I'm good at being the weak
But inside you don't know
How unbreakable I could be

Steal every attention
Dominate all the spotlight 
I'm good at being the shadow
But inside you don't know
How dark I could be

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
