Fake seems to be in trend,
Countless hours on it people spend.
You’re not broken, Why mend?
Beware of people who pretend!
Real never goes out of style,
Paint your true profile.
Confidently wear your frown or smile,
We’re all here only for a while
Paint yourself happy
for the world to see
But inside you know
it’s dark and dreary.
Fake it ’til you make it?
Seems like such a shame.
Smiling, hiding crying.
Just a pawn in their game.
What we see on the social media,
Deviation from reality, we have no idea.
Not a reflection of “what is”,
But mostly an expression of “what could be”.
Never get carried away by what is out there,
A Simple Hello, more than a like,
will show you care.
Turn off the filters
and break free
from societies unrealistic standards.
Repaint your image with self love
and you shall see
the true masterpiece
that lies beneath.
I paint my profile
the way I choose
Its not my style
to let my sadness loose
In the web out there, I might smile
In reality, it might be a ruse
Not to fool everyone to ground
But to avoid spreading
Smile, and the world smiles with you,
so I hide my pain, I cry alone,
but I paint, present and display,
my smiling visage, and hope,
that one day, someone might
notice that my smiles,
don’t reach my eyes.
My picture may reflect my emotion.
But with the paint brush of illusion..
I repaint my self
and mend what’s been broken.
A bright smile beaming with beauty.
No, it is not true, I just smile out of duty.
A fake pose, a fake photo, a fake smile.
That’s the trend nowadays. Yes, that’s the style.
