Fake it ’til you make it.

We break and
We fold and
We change
Everything we ever were
For the chance to
Be believed in, to
Be found, to
Be loved
And it hurts
But we smile and
We laugh and
We say,
“I’m okay,”
Because the truth hurts and
Fake it ‘til you make it,
But all I want to know is:
Will I ever make it?



I can’t see my face in the mirror

No, I only see a shadow

I wondered how long it would take

For my shadow-self to show through

But no one was the wiser

No, no one ever knew
