1st Place Winner, November/December 2013 Contest: “Make Believe”

1st Place
“Make Believe”
Kyle Cox
Orlando, Florida

I tried my hand at being a writer
Got lost in the pages
Searching for the truth
I tried my hand at being a fighter
But I laid down my gloves
And what I had to prove

Oh I’ve heard
You can be anything you want to be
Still ain’t worked out for me
Is this absurd
Chasing something I can’t see
I’m beginning to think
I’m just playing make believe

I’ve been told I should’ve been a dreamer
But it’s hard to keep dreaming
If you can’t fall asleep
I’ve been told I could’ve been a preacher
Sure, I’ve got things to say
But talk is so cheap

Oh I’ve heard
You can be anything you want to be
Still ain’t worked out for me
Is this absurd
Chasing something I can’t see
I’m beginning to think
Oh, I’m beginning think

So I’ve heard
You can be anything you want to be
Still ain’t worked out for me
Is this absurd
That I’m chasing something I can’t see
I’m beginning to think that
I’m just playing make believe
