I Can’t Even Pretend

I am a man giving

I am a man forgiving

I am a man living

In pain

Not me

We never lost control

A man who sold himself

For fame and wealth

To a place I end

To a place I find pretend

Gazing into the sky

Asking why, a long, long time ago

Who knows

I walk with a pain in my chest

I walk looking at what’s best

I fall forgetting thought

As

I

Am

Brought

To a place I run away from

In a day that has now come

Bringing forth another tomorrow

I want to run from

And walk towards

As I can’t even pretend to act like I am

Not

Moving

Forward
