Pretend

*Disclaimer - I don't own Digimon. Toei does.
*Takeru poem originally written in a bout of depression, but then I wondered if he was going through the same thing. So here we are.

It's hard at first
To pretend.
To cover up the tears.

It gets easier
To pretend.
To wear that cheerful mask.

Then people count on you
To pretend.
To give them hope.

It becomes a habit
To pretend.
To bottle up those tears.

Wonder if it's possible not
To pretend.
To finally rip the mask away.

But they count on you
To pretend.
To believe that everything will be all right.

When does the pretending stop?
