Teens Self Help

A medium to express myself and talk about my feelings, hoping to inspire you... "Believe in yourself, in the power you have to control your own life day by day. Believe in the strength that you have deep inside and your faith will help show you the way. Believe in tomorrow and what it will bring. For things will work out if you trust and believe there is no limit to what you can do!" (Larry S. Chengges)

I wrote this yesterday and today... a few thoughts that entered my mind. It also reminded me about Bob Marley's song... "Don't worry about a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right." (Song title: "Three Little Birds")

Life is all about pretending, 
sometimes, pretending a lot!
Even when we are well,
we like to pretend we are not
And when we are not well,
we pretend we are…
We pretend we are happy
We pretend we are sad
We pretend we have it all together…
When maybe we really don't!
It’s all a pretend game
(especially on Facebook
and other Social Media)
We like to pretend…
Pretend that everything is alright,
even when it is not - or even when it is
We are always hopeful though (I hope),
even when hope is not possible 
Hope, we must have!
Life is a challenge
No doubt
And it’s all a pretend game,
Even when we are honest
Even when we lie
But is this right?
To pretend…?
Maybe sometimes it is
Maybe sometimes it is not
Maybe it is how we cope
when things get hard
Sometimes pretending is fun
Sometimes, it is not…
But, no matter what,
we must remain strong
and know
that deep inside
we are alright!
(we'll be alright!)
