Life is really just a game,
You just need to know how to hide,
Hide feelings not yet given a name,
They just pile higher inside.
Every day you venture out,
You have to paste on the smile,
And certainly, without a doubt,
You’ll be able to stay awhile.
But soon it comes,
The time to go back in,
The buzz in your head hums,
Now you’re safe again.
Safe from harmful, hateful sins,
That come from within yourself,
In this case, no one wins,
It’s just put back on the shelf.
