Things Aren't Always What They Seem

Tear stained faces
Hurt hearts
hide in places
they never thought they'd go.
It just goes for show
Things aren't always what they seem.

They hide behind
Titles, lies, fights,
drugs, fake love, knives;
on lonely nights.
Just so you know,
Things aren't always what they seem.

Choices are chosen
Decisions decided,
in the spur of the moment
normal isn't abided.
Emotions run high,
confidence runs low.
It just goes for show-
Things aren't always what they seem.

The strong will stumble
The "gods" will fumble
The champions will tumble.
The rich will feel poor
The ones who "have it all" will want more
The wise won't know what's in store
The happy will hurt
The bad can get worse.
Just to let you know-
Things aren't always what they seem.
