stop pretending

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

why are we so afraid
to fail
to realize that you can't always do
what you thought you could do
why does it seem like you didn't do it right
when perhaps
you did it the way
you were supposed to
why does it look like
on the outside
you've got it together
when on the inside
you don't
why do you pretend
when you don't have to

happy national poetry day you guys. btw a real human is beautiful. be that.

  1. Real people *are* beautiful! And yet it's so hard to truly open up your own real self...

  2. ohh I love this so much! To be honest fear of failure or of realising that I can't do the thing I want to do holds me back from even trying quite often so this was a lovely reminder :) x

    1. aww thanks <3 and wow, isn't that such a sad truth?! I struggle with that too. I guess we have to see that even in a failure, there are lessons to be learned - nothing is wasted!
