Faking is the name of the game,
Faking is here to stay.
Faking helps you survive,
faking helps you thrive.
Faking protects you from storms,
Faking leads you to light.
Being fake takes years to achieve,
the longer it takes, the smoother it is.
Being fake is living with another
persona stretched over your skin.
Occasionally, the inner self bursts through,
creating ruptures in the tightly etched skin.
But, don’t worry, The skin re-forms and grows
again and again.
Faking is in your blood,
Faking is an artifice of the brain.
It won’t die cause you say.
Be careful it only protects and not
suppress you in an armor so thick,
that you get lost behind the layers of paint.
Faking is a necessary evil,
as necessary as oxygen to us.
The world won’t understand us always,
so why show it our real selves?
Fake away to glory,
Fake away till the heavens ‘ end
Fake away till you lose your senses
till you fall down dead.
