Memento Mori- It means that nothing lasts forever, no one is immortal, sooner or later you will die and things will come to an end. It also helps you realize that while you are living you should do the most with your life, live life to the fullest.

I do not understand...

My friends continue to leave

So I put on a mask

Pretend to be someone else

Maybe this me is better

They seem to like taht version more, that person

So the farce is ongoing

Yet I try to show them

Who I really am, but, they pull away

Will they leave like the others, like all the rest?

Or by the smallest chance

Will they stay...

Are they able to accept me for who I am?

Or is the person that I pretend to be

Who they really want to be friends with?

Should I continue to be this person?

This fake...

Wear this mask till the end of my days

And keep everything I have?

Or should I take the mask off?

Be the real me and lose everything, again...
