Caring Versus Pretending

Caring Versus Pretending

People will pretend to care,
if you give them something in return.

People get paid to pretend to care.

Who really cares?
Who cares enough to ignore the rules,
when it’s time to break them?

Because sometimes the rules are wrong,
and the dreams are right,
because without the dreamers,
you’d never be moved to fight,
for something better than this chaos,
halfway between darkness and light.
