Faking It - Poem by Vonnie Enochs

Cry your faith away
Laugh at hopes and dreams
Get angry when you’re happy
And drown yourself in a stream.

Be confused when you smile
And be dazed when you blink
Wonder why you bleed
And stain your steel sink

Turn your back to fear
Say no until your hit
Be the same as everyone else
Pretend all this so you forget.

Go on with your problems
Never seek help
Go ahead, cut yourself
It's the best pain you've ever felt.
