Keep On Faking It

 

Better stop frowning child

Plaster a big ol smile on your face and pretend

that you're the jolliest

You're not

but it's okay

As long as you just keep on faking it everyone else will be happy

So what it's a trapped being inside of you

Yelling and screaming

“Help!”

But no one ever hears you

No one tastes the perplex pain of your burdened sorrows shouting from the depths of your soul

If they could hear you

they wouldn't listen

So you better widen your lips into an intricate boomerang across your face

Nobody knows

Nobody needs to know

so just forget it

Just keep on faking it

yeah that'll work. .

    Thanks JAZZ ~ When we are depressed no one hears our cries. BUT ~ as you suggest ~ when we fake it people actually notice us ! SMILE (even a fake one) and the World smiles with you ! Thanks for caring ~ Yours BRIAN
