Skill of pretend
We’ve travelled the globe in search for belonging
The light in our eyes squandered
We’ve swapped ourselves for the skill of pretend
We’ve built wisdom
To the point of becoming giants
But we still felt small
Living the façade
Of a life forgotten
All to belong
All for love
Died in the fire of our unbecoming
My whole life
I was fighting these monsters
These thoughts of rejection
To the point of brokenness
Staring down my end
I realised in my loneliness
That these monsters are my only friends.
It’s a difficult thing to let go of our desire to be a part of society.
Deep. Really enjoyed this read. Concise and clear.
