The Great Pretender

Pretend

Pretend you’re well when you’re sick.

Pretend you’re happy when sad.

Pretend that all is well with the world in order to make others happy.

I’m the Clown behind the mask.

Only then will the world smile upon me.

All the World Loves a Liar. One who ignores their true feelings.

Nobody wants the truth. Lies are all that matters.

Facade becomes Truth

The Lies of Positive Thinking. Until the day those Lies catch fire.

Then your Life will burn to the ground.

I’m in the Make Believe Ballroom.
