As if


I knelt as if to pray
As if I believed

I hoped “as if”
Would be enough

Enough to make
Believe, belief

I’d lived my life
As if

As if
I was someone else

It wasn’t as if
I hadn’t tried

I’d tried to be
Myself

It was as if
Myself was not allowed

Did I live my life
As if I’d lied

As if the pain of hiding me
Was planned

I hoped and hid and tried
As if it would be enough

I have had to learn
We do not live

As if we lived
We simply

Live
