PRETENSE – BY DELIGHT NWANERI
My life is such a pretense Does it really make sense? Just like this for instance I have said nothing but nonesense I have shown no prudence All I want to be Is really nothing as me I am nothing like him I am nothing as I seem Real!Real! Real! Can I ever this be Someone once said "A chameleon is not worse as thou art.. Your life and everything is but an act". Reality is too raw,sore, core What if I'm not that strong I feel safe under the umbrella of pretense And just watch the summer come with intense Maybe me is not me Maybe pretense is real me! Fear hits my heart To be real never will I Nothing is interesting in I I feel like a sored eye And it comes down to a sigh Me is too plain Doesn't fly like a plane It moves rather like a train But I therefore strain Maybe not being me really is me Maybe in that pretense is the real me Cause I'm so much comfortable being 'not me' Maybe Me is really not Me!
