Children of pretend

Oh, we pretend
there’s no denying
that we try,
even your strongest friend
gets caught up
In this lie.

Now you are responsible,
hold your head up
and be proud.
You are now accountable,
you must stand
out from the crowd.

No one knows
Your little secret,
you must keep it
hidden well.
What you give
is what you get
you must hide
within this hell.

Please stop and
hear this,
for we all are just the same,
there’s something that
we all miss getting
caught up in this game.

I know that you’re still weary,
like a frightened child.
Inside you’re scared and teary,
and your heart beats ever wild.

Look deep into their faces
wearing their grown up masks
scurrying to their places
doing their grownup tasks.

Inside their lonely soul,
a child screams to play.
But time will take it’s toll
as they rush on with their day.

Inside their broken heart
A child begs for love
although their world
seems torn apart,
pride will rise above.

Everyone is just like me
and just like you, my friend
the secrets in us all you see
we’re all children of pretend.
