"Fakeness"

Too often
We put a mask of fakeness
Trying to hide all that we feel
Inside of us
Too often
We pretend we don't care
When we feel like there is
A monster inside of us
Ripping us apart
Causing unexplainable pain

Why we are so scared
Of our real selves?
We try to block all our senses
Trying not to experience any pain
Real us
Trying to get out from its cage

We build a wall around us
Not letting anyone in
Scared and pushed to the edge
With every pain
The wall gets higher
Many people try to climb it
But they fall
Only people we trust
Get a ladder to overcome
What we fear the most

Why we are so scared
Of our real selves?
We try to block all our senses
Trying not to experience any pain
Real us
Trying to get out from its cage

Loving lies
That people feed me
The whispers behind my back
That stab me with no mercy
All this fakeness
Makes me want to run away
And never come back

THAT'S IT!

Enough of hiding
To fit in
So-called normality
I will be myself
I will drown with freedom
And feeling free
No one will stop me now
Welcome real me 

The End
