In this world full of fakes,
its so hard to be real,
and I'm just tryin' to be myself.
Is it too much for me to take on,
should I just back up and,
become one of you?
I feel like my life would be easier,
if I was one of you,
if I looked liked you,
if I talked like you,
or at least tried to.
In this world full of fakes,
its so hard to be real,
and I'm just tryin' to be myself.
I have already lost everyone I used to know,
everyone I used to love,
everyone I used to be,
to the world of the fakes,
and I feel like I'm all alone.
All alone,
in this world full of fakes,
oh! Why can't it be real!
Would be easier to just become one of you?
Follow down the footsteps of people past..
In this world full of fakes,
its so hard to be real,
and I'm just tryin' to be myself.

I love how REAL this poem is! Strangely, I can relate to this! I'm surrounded by so many fakes these days, while I'm trying to keep it REAL! XD 5/5!!!

"The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty."
