Better Than The Rest - Poem by Angelica Duardo

I wish the wind could reach you
And tell you all the secrets that I keep
I hope you’ll understand me
Don’t judge me until you know what I mean

Cause it’s easy to pretend
To be better than the rest

Unsure of all my talents
I hid them from myself and everybody else
Considered as unhappy
I smiled just because they said I had

Cause it’s easy to pretend
Be unfaithful to yourself

You made me feel so insecure
I felt that I could never count on you
Cause everything that I did
Was wrong, misled or not worth to exist

Cause it’s easy to pretend
Try to live as someone else

I finally found courage
I’m telling you now everything I feel
Consider me as happy
I’m finally being true to my own self

Cause it’s easy to pretend
But is better to be myself

No one’s better than the rest
We all deserve our happiness
Live our lives true to ourselves
Loving everybody else

I wish the wind could reach you
And tell you all the secrets that I keep
I hope we’ll understand this
Nobody is ever better than the rest
