Not even a trained actress
could play this part.
How am I supposed to live like this
without losing my heart?
They tell me not to forget who I am
and I’m trying to keep my vows,
but society has its own plans
and I’m running out of ideas now.
I’m trying to hold my ground
I want to be steady
but my face has a permanent frown
and my life is miraculously messy.
