Pretender

What is the meaning of life,
why am I here?
to drift through life so endlessly
without a single tear?

Or, better yet a million tears
to ease away the pain
time and time again I cry
and still remain the same.

Oh, what's the use of crying?
The feeling will never stray
I'll probably feel sorry for myself
and pretend everything's ok.

Questions, Rants, Raves? Here is the place you wanna go.
