Chapter 9 - Masks

You're the hero

You're the guy

everyone will be cheering for

when this is all over

You're just the

sidekick - and you know it

You're the annoying ADHD weirdo

Who just can't take anything seriously

You get all the glory

at the end anyway

You think it's

ALL ABOUT YOU

And in this world, sadly

It is.

You just

don't understand

You think it's all about

the fame, the glory -

(okay, that is a part of it, but still)

You've never been under

so much

P*R*E*S*S*U*R*E

You always get the girl

You're basically the

perfect Disney hero

everyone loves that - don't they?

Your life is like

a stupid fairytale.

You think it's all

fun and games

Wake up.

Life isn't all about

the jokes

You don't have to put in the hard work

You just get the

sweet rewards.

You're so

B*I*G*H*E*A*D*E*D

So sure

And you take all

the credit

claiming yourself to big and brave

You know what?

Your facade is

F

A

L

L

I

N

G

apart.

You think everyone is so

easygoing

You don't see the

pain

misery

sorrow

You act like you don't have

a care in the world

Well guess what?

We do.

I don't know how we ended up to be "friends"

If I chose my friends, you wouldn't be one of them

So I just keep on

a mask of friendship

Because you're an arrogant liar

Because you're an annoying fool

Because - oh yeah -

You're Jason Grace.

You're Leo Valdez.
