Runs around the world
Even runs the world's too
Since most people are afraid to be themselves.
Rather be someone they are not
To get people they don't like much
Or that don't care for them
So they can fit in.
It's just the empty laughter
That someone gives out
When you make a joke
That they don't care for
But try to get along with
For the sake of keeping peace.
The empty smile
That's holds nothingness
Just an upturn mouth
That has no happiness
But doesn't want to show true emotions.
It's a facade
An escape to not let anyone in
To be like everyone else
So can be seen as better from everyone
Nor targeted for being different.
The kindness that's more for their sake
To get others to always like them…
But your happiness slips away
For being someone you aren't
To get others who only like you
For being what they wanted you to be.
Fake isn't what you should be
Even with most people not liking you
Or against you
At least you can be yourself
With the people who actually truly care
That actually see you for you.
It gets tiring dealing with fakes
Just a shadow of who they really are
But fakes have cracks
And sometimes you can help them break them out of it.
