Pretense

Pretense

A superior stature attempts to hide,

The insecurities that heart to mind confide.

Walking tall lifts her from the ground,

In a way she runs away from the surround.

With a glacial stare her peers are fooled,

To believe by emotions she isn’t ruled.

Her steely silence manages to hide,

Her quivering voice making her tongue-tied.

Her newfound swagger appears to prevent,

The world from seeing her soul dent.

All in all the ruse helps her evade,

The pain she feels, and hopes will fade.
