The Fake People - Poem by Matthew Rousseau

People may pretend to care
And volunteer to work
But after work they turn on the cold stare
In their hearts hate is what lurks
I hate that kind…
So fake and selfish
Me and them think different in our mind
Good people are the ones who are selfless
I am no exception
I can be selfish at times
I cast a self-deception
My personality can be like wind chimes
It changes momentarily
And i catch it in the act
I cure my myself singularity
And change it back
In a world of fakes
Where people take for granted every meal
Where people expect bithday cakes
Dare to be real
