When life gets stationary
Like a mossy stone,
When time feels like
A claustrophobic cul-de-sac,
When people pelt stones at you
Like a pack of snarling stray-dogs,
It is felt that we must pretend;
Aye, it's time to pretend,
For, being unmasked, you can't
Survive in the midst of
An unruly mob of
Masked people with
The same visages.
Hence, all must pretend;
It's time to pretend.
Survive in the midst of An unruly mob of Masked people with The same visages. It is time to pretend. A very good poem

CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as The Member Poem Of The Day. Hooray! BUT I never pretend. I say my honest words. We can talk in a way that we need not insult others, we can tell the truth uin a friendly and loving way, so pretending is not needed. Pretend is for the weak persons who do not tell the truth. We can tell all truths in a smart way that won't offend others. Because to pretend is to gain more stress, from stress one can die
