Get real


My friend told me to ‘Get Real'
And I wondered what it means?
Real to me meant to be who I was
Without any pretensions,
I always took pride in saying
I am who I am
And take me as I am
You get, what you see
Nothing less, nothing more
No but then I was wrong
Getting real,
It meant to be made-up,
Trying to hide our imperfections,
Brushing away our blemishes,
Masking our imperfections,
To survive in this skewed world!
