You are who you are

Have you ever seen the eyes
Every morning I disguise
To hide these tiresome tears
And raise the casual cheers?

Up to now it was fine, for
I’m a proficient actor
But now you claim to know me
Let me state it’s not easy

Every single time I lie
To myself
Sometimes I just can’t hold on
Anymore

Do I persevere or struggle?
Should I keep hoping or sink?
Does it really matter?

When we’re walking side by side
I just leave my thoughts aside
For an hour I forget
Although they come back at night

One morning I’ll wake up
From this dream within a dream
And when you walk on by
Far away from their sights
You’ll whisper in my ear
So softly:
‘Be yourself’…
