Trying to fit in closer,
Trying all your best,
Trying to be like someone you’re not,
Trying to be like the rest.


Trying to feel like you’re not in pain,
Trying to feel like there’s something to gain,
Trying to act like there’s nothing wrong,
Pretending life is just a song.

    @familyfurore I read this today and found it so – ‘touching’, ‘appropriate’ – l found it just so right.

    Oh my goodness, your articles have got away from me. There are so many I haven’t yet read.
