All I Do Is Pretend

all i do is
pretend i’m okay
pretend that i’m strong
that everything will be
just fine – that the light
at the end of the tunnel
isn’t a on coming train

stand tall – which is hard
to do when you are only 5 feet one
give them that, i don’t give
a fuck attitude
say what you will, do what you want
you can’t hurt me, i’m indestructible

you say it enough
and you begin
to believe your own lies
and slowly the lies
become the truth

i don’t give a fuck
about anyone or anything
i don’t feel, i’m numb
from the inside out
i no longer need to pretend
i just am

      1. I guessed something was not good for you Annie. I kept looking to see if you had pisted. Was worried for you. Glad you are back now my friend
