Pretending

Location

Do I look hot?

Doesn’t matter, I’m Late

Shit, I forgot

To watch my weight

 

I tried my best

I got a 58

I failed that test

So I guess I just ate

 

Don’t think about it

Just get out the door

But if I could just sit

A minute more

 

No sleep last night

Too much to do

Try as I might

I am never through

 

It just never ends

This, that, and the other

Schoolwork, boys, and friends

 One thing, then another

 

Stop complaining

It’s time to go

No one is listening

To this self-pity and woe

 

I have a great life

Boyfriend and all

No sadness or strife

It's a ball

 

Or so I say

But by the end

Of every day

How long must I pretend?

How long must I remain?
