Pretending Otherwise

Pretending Otherwise

Haven’t you forgotten something?
take a moment to remind yourself

is it enough to decide against who you were
to fit into who you are
when pretending otherwise
strains your ability to pretend otherwise
and lets be honest
you’re much too old for that

has it been so long
since you could trust everything
you told yourself you were
when you didn’t look too closely
at what you were becoming

have you got it now little soldier?
or do you need more time to forget it all
before you lay your precious little head down to sleep?
