I can pretend

I’m okay
My wounds are closed
My smile’s not fake

I can pretend

My eyes see beyond
The endless nights
The gloom and pain

I can pretend

That I’m alright
And the sun will shine
In brighter days

Because I can pretend
And I will pretend
As I always pretend

A pretender

That’s what I am
