Fake it till you make it

I couldn’t sleep last night
Nor the night before that
I can’t sleep tonight
This is standard format

Fake it till you make it
Walk right out the door
Go through all the motions
Find yourself on the floor

A breakthrough for a moment
While at the laundromat
Everything that’s clear now
Fogs up on the way back

Fake it till you make it
Forget all that he’s done
Your hearts the size of Texas
But he’s your only one

Standing in the shower
Breathing in hot air
You’ve been in there for an hour
But there’s still time to spare

Fake it till you make it
And take care of yourself
The pain won’t always be there
You won’t always feel like someone else

Take my hand and guide me
Bring me back to life
I thought love was the answer
Not an ingredient of strife

Fake it till you make it
In the end it’s only you
There are no clear answers
In my point of view

  1. Faded moments of clarity, I know those so well. For me they at least provide moments of happiness that I can keep hold of the feeling.
    Indeed there often are no clear answers, only points of view. SO your point of view is completely valid for you. But be open to change and changes of view within yourself, for on that path is growth and hope.

  2. Such a beautiful poem. I have a poem in which I use “fake it till you make it”. I’m still trying to. It’s still not working. But at some point it will hopefully click and work out. Keep your head up. Wish I had better advice but I’m struggling myself as well. Just hang in there.
