In the facade that you created
With those plastic smiles, the vanity bags
and the faces so diligently painted
In the frenzy to win the never ending rat races
The need to be validated, the need to be accepted
You smile when you want to laugh and you hide when you want to cry.
You talk things, things about politics, may be fashion or sports or whatever
But, never your heart, Never !
You wake up every morning to make a living but never to make a life.
You strive and strive harder by every passing day to create a life which is approved by them.
Yes Them, the neighbours, the aunts, the boss, the friend, that cousin...you don't know them.
You log in and logout just to be present,
and not to really "connect"
You marry, you bear kids, earn money and thats all you do,
You pray but you don't believe.
You point those fingers at the demons outside,but don't ever dare to look inside.
You put up a brave face, when you are actually scared.
You achieve glory at the pretense, of being radical.
you chicken out at the thought of doing beyond what has been done.
NO ONE !!
No one cares how you look, talk,what you do, don't do.
