168 – Why pretend?

pretendYou pretend to be what you are not
You feign reality
Continually
Cease-less

You role play life
That you invent
Fabricate
Imitate
Simulate

You wear a pretentious front
You attempt to deceive
A false showing
With false reasoning
While in your heart you believe

You play a make-believe lying game
With never a hint of shame
That we also play along
So why should we assign any blame
When we ourselves pretend there’s nothing wrong
**********************************************
“God has given you one face,
And you make yourself another.”

William Shakespeare

    This poem speaks volumes. You’re good!
