Daily Prompt: Fake

I thought I knew you

someone who wanted to better their self.

But in reality, you just wanted attention

and if you received it great but if someone

just didn’t give it.

That was so not acceptable

you were fake down to everything that

made you who you are and were.

Sometimes it’s hard to see the fake people

for who they truly are.

For they put a smile on their face when they see

you, but inside they dislike you for your different.

You stay true to yourself even when they try to

push you down the path of faking it until you make it.

But you see you for who you are, and you rather not end

up feeling lost.

You found your path and you rather not be dragged down

something that is fake and will end up causing you more

pain in the end.

Because when fake walks away with a smile on their face, knowing

that they ruined something that never needed to be fixed in the first place.

They have gained something that is yours, your worth and knowing

being different is better than fitting into the box of fake or normal.

Be yourself, never let the fake win in the end, for your worth is too important

to put into someone else’s hand.

  1. Yes! Oh boy can I relate to your poem. There are people out there who will smile to your face while holding a knife behind their back waiting to stab yours…the more in tune you are with yourself, the easier it is to spot such people…and funny…when you call them out on it…suddenly they are the victim…and have no idea what you are talking about…I have learned it’s just best to walk away from these people. I don’t even bother to waste my energy on things like that any more and since I have started doing that, it’s made room for the people in my life who truly matter. ❤
