Don’t Pretend

There are things
that I cannot explain,
things that are far from
the knowledge of my brain.

There are emotions
that are hard to grasp
when the real reasons are
not completely laid down.

There are circumstances
that define us who we are,
but it should not be that
way.

I pretend to be happy.
You pretend you don’t
need help at all. We arrive
as losers or winners.

Don’t.
Don’t pretend what you
are not.You and I must be
the children of truth.
