Writing For the Facade


Recommended Posts

(I don't know if anyone will get this. . .I don't really know if *I* even get this. . .It's just some minor ramblings I had........)

The sadness burns
Like the thousand words
That were never said
I guess I'll never learn
It'll never be my turn
I'll always see red

But I put on a smile
And laugh for a while
Just for the sake of the Facade
I'll fight through this trial
I'll walk another mile
Just for the sake of the Facade

You got to hide
While my world died
Just for the sake of the Facade
You got the lie
While I had to take the truth in stride
Just for the sake of the Facade

I still don't know what it means
Still can't find my broken dreams
Lost for the Facade
I've lost myself,it seems
In the torn seams
I smothered myself for the Facade

Now I know I can't be perfect
That's it's just not worth it
And I won't pretend
Not for another second
Not for the Facade

I "get it."

It is how I feel a lot of the time. I pretend to be happy or excited, or I do things because other people want to. In the process I lose track of what I a really want to do. I will do just about anything to avoid a conflict.

In being such a damn "people pleaser" I have kind of lost track of where I want to be. Now it is time for me to go away to college, to start on my own, and I have no idea what to do. I have been living for others for so long, I do not know what I want to do for a career, for the rest of my life.
I feel like I have to keep a happy face, not make a conflict all the time. It really is a facade.
