Roll With The Punches

from by Michael Guy Bowman



Who do we know when we know who we are?
Who do we play when we're playing our part?
Why do we keep putting on disguises
Clinging to the cheapest of surprises?

Clothes make the man, but the man makes mistakes
How to survive in a world full of fakes?
Why do we repress our on affections
Living by the code of our rejections?

Is it always so damn hard
To learn to be happy with who you are
To roll with the puches
Admit that our hunches
Are the only truths we know?

Why must our praise be indulged by a score?
How can we love when we live like a whore?
Where did we acquire these convictions
Guided not by joy but our afflictions?

Why call the gaffes when we're all making bluffs?
Who says we're made of immutable stuff?
Why do we keep burying the layers?
Couldn't we admit we're only players?
