I'm just being me

" Whats wrong you ask?" you ask. Of course I reply with a "I'm fine." But of course you ask me again at least three more times. You tell me I'm not acting like "myself" The thing is, I am acting like myself. Just today I'm not wearing that fake smile I plaster on my face every morning, I haven't laughed at something I don't even think is funny with that fake laugh of mine that I found myself using more and more each day.
The thing is, today I'm being me. Just me. Simply me. I just got sick of pretending that everything is perfect, that my life is great and I'm totally happy. I thought for once that today I could take rest and be myself.
So to answer your question for the fifth time. Yes I am fine, yes I am being myself. Im being the me that I am, not that everybody thinks I am. Because today I thought id be ... me, just me, simply me
