In the bar
They dance, and spin.
Each trying to impress someone new.
Each pretending to be someone else
Something they're not.
Reminds me of high school
It was all about popularity
Who was the prettiest
Who was most athletic.
Do we ever really stop pretending.
Do we ever alow ourselves to be who we truley are
Or do we always lie
And do we lie only to others
Or do we also lie to ourselves?
Do we ever REALLY know who we are?

  1. I like this one a lot. I got out of high school as fast as I could because I just didn't like the atmosphere. Now I find myself working with high school students again. They evade the question of what's realy important. It's the same thing many adults do. My favorite questions are: Who am I? What do I want? and Where am I going?

    I ask myself these questions from time to time. It's okay that the answer changes as time goes by, but I think that everyone should ask themself.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
