 ABOUT
LANCE POLIN 

Faceless yet voidless, with no form that can ever stop trying to grow. Some may call this survival instinct viral, or parasitic. Yet it is the only way to keep moving on . . .

Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
A structured commentary on something less pure.
"The Reasons Not to Pretend" by Lance Polin
There is no reason to pretend
We are not well
We are not pure
We are not loved

Yet always we want to pretend
Like we're better
Like we are clean
Like we are loved.

There are reasons not to pretend
To be truthful
Live honestly
Forgetting love.

Author Notes
The author of this poem is tired of the lies we all tell ourselves and the ones that we raise our children to believe. This author is very tired. This author needs to desperately go to sleep . . .
