Put on the smile, say the right words
I fooled them all, it was a snap
Move the pawn, play with confidence
I fooled them all, it was a snap
Accept the challenge, dance with grace
I fooled them all, it was a snap
Find my mark, recite the lines
I fooled them all, it was a snap
Look in the mirror, no one knew me
I fooled them all, it was a snap

Reflected back is
Someone I donít know
I fooled them all
And then I snapped

Old ways wonít work now that Iím in college
Iíll just be myself, itíll be a snap
A required course causes fear
Iíll fool them just this once, itíll be a snap
Donít understand the game, will have to fake confidence
I fooled them all, it was a snap
Avoid challenges; let them think I donít care
I fooled them all, it was a snap
Forget the mark, stay backstage
Being myself, it was a snap

Looking in the mirror I recognize
Someone who plays many roles
I fool them all
Itís a snap

Powerful and more than just a bit like all of us, I'm afraid. We all put on our pretenses and hide our challenges...God knows us, though, and we know ourselves.

The second stanza speaks volumes, "And then I snapped." Great job with the topic.

This poem brought lots of images to mind, reflections of the poet's soul.
