Fake It To Make It


Someone once said to me that I 

fake it to make it.

At first most would deny it,

everyone hates fake people



Look around

that girls smile?

It keeps her social life afloat.

that boys jokes?

It is the only thing that keeps his mind off of home.


They are doing it for themselves

for a sense of





Yet all we do is criticize them.

They, like us,

are trying to survive, all they know is to 

fake it to make it
