I fake my way through life
Every day I wake and take the stage
I put on the costume and don the accessories
I play the part of a happy mother
A fulfilled wife
A successful businesswoman
Every day I read the lines that life has written for me
I am grateful
I am happy
I am loved
I look at my husband and tell him I’m lucky
He smiles at me
He plays his part well
I look at my children
Well dressed
Well behaved
They play their part well
We play our parts together
We smile
We look…happy
But inside
Inside we are trying
We are lying
We are dying
