2023.10.24 Words with Rupi – What I Keep Hidden

The thing I am most scared of people finding out about me is I have so much “fake.”  I fake smartness.  I fake strength.  I fake health.  I fake agency and choice.  I fake I don’t care.  I fake I know what I am doing.  I fake so much.  

I fake with my appearance, demeanor, looks.

I fake how much I’d rather be home – yet, I do love traveling!

I fake on money.  

I fake on sincerity and altruism.
