Pretend - Poem by courtney metcalf
Pretend your life is perfect.
Pretend like everyday of living it is worth it.
Pretend like nobody points or stares.
And most of all, pretend like you don't even care.
Pretend that everything is just how you want it.
Pretend and pretend, every single moment.
Pretend until you can't pretend anymore.
Pretending just makes a life a little less sore.
But to me, pretending is a full time occupation,
And I hate dealing with all of its frustration.
So today, I quit pretending and I lay down my mask.
I don't care if you make fun of me with your friends and laugh.
This is who I am, accepted or denied.
This is the real me, no more fake disguise.
