Fake - Poem by Arnee Akpan

Fake Life!
Fake friends
Fake! , Fake! , Fake!
I live in a world of Fakeness
A world where I see no originality in man
Except the chameleon character they display

Many have tried to act the opposite way
In order to fit into the crowd in the hall

Afraid of what others will say about us,
We have put on these camouflage of a shirt
Abandoned our principles and ethics of life
Because of these,
A Hill of badluck has appeared infront of us

I am a victim of these circumtances
Victimized by Mr. Fakeness
But!
I've decided to embark on a mission though it seems impossible
But I will search and destroy these fakeness
Including the one in ME

    You have wonderfully observed. To which you say fake is out of reality that is illusion. Every individual lives alone even in society. Amazing.10 (Report) Reply
