Stop Pretending.

Stop Pretending
By: Dennis Nguyen

Stop pretending that you’re okay
Stop pretending that it’s alright to stay
Stop pretending to smile everyday
Stop pretending that you don’t want change

Stop pretending that you’re okay
You hurt everyone more that way
People will worry and lose their way
Your scars will become deeper if you stay

Stop pretending that it’s alright to stay
You’ve been wounded so many times in the past day
Do you think if you stay still,
The wounds will go away?

Stop pretending to smile everyday
That smile cuts sharper than a frown anyway
Cry your tears, let them out
Tell people about your pain, they’ll get you out.

Stop pretending that you don’t want change
Don’t think that you were meant to be in chains
Know that there is freedom to be found
If you stop pretending that you’re bound

Stop pretending that one day someone else will make everything right
Because if everyone did so, it would forever be night.
Fight towards the morning you want to see,
Together with those who love you, who want you to be free.
