Fake

Location

Head high
Unless it’s cold
Back straight
Assured strides

 

Blue hair
Loud voice
Smiles sprinkled
All the way

 

Real life
Depression
Anxiety
Joint pain

 

Medication
Therapy
Stereotypes
Thrown at me

 

Buddhist
Lesbian
White girl
Comfortable

 

Practicing
Shyness
Open but
Not confident

 

Mask of smiles
Oh so nice
Expensive jewelry
Beautiful

 

Really sad
Very nice
Lots of gifts
Not pretty

 

Lots of friends
‘Til the end
Not that many
But while I stand

 

In the casket
When I’m dead
Fake still
Mask on

 

Loved by all
Hated by none
I was so nice
Fake still

 

In the ground
Tears around
People say
They loved me

 

They never knew
Truly knew
Me or my emotions

 

By my side
Or my grave
My love I gave
Although I’m fake

 

Scared to let
People in
For fear of hearts
Shattered

 

Keeping people
Out of mind
To stop the worry
Of my life

 

My life is
So jumbled
And few know all
The story

 

Some day I may
Release the truth
But I will die
Fake
