Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Who you present to the world is not necessarily who you really are.
I smile but it is feigned
I laugh but it is forced
I mingle but I dislike people
I work hard but hate my job

I pray but have no faith
I vote but have no hope
I yell where no one can hear
I hate life but fear my death

I act strong when afraid
I act weak before the strong
I am silent when I should speak out
I cry where nobody sees

Depression, Repression, Suppression
I have called each of these friend
I'd seek redemption if I wasn't so lazy
Maybe it comes at the end.
