Half a lie 
Half a mask 
Half the truth 
From a haunting past 

Half a grin 
Half a wave 
Half paying attention 
As the world spins by 

Half awake
Half asleep 
Half a try for conciousness 
I keep 

Halfway here 
Halfway gone 
Halfway sane 
When the day is done. 
Now with a tune! Thank you :icontheunisquirrel: for creating beautiful instrumental and voice to my poem! Watch and subscribe to her, people! [link]

this is slick - I like the music and rhythm of it - one thing - not even slant rhyming lines 2 & 4 in stanza 2 calls a lot of attention to it, it sticks out - not sure you want this when the money stanza is the 4th - imo you need to hard rhyme or slant it enough to keep the reader flowing into the 3rd stanza where your rhyme/rhythm break is beautiful and works like a charm - wouldn't be hard to fix if you wanted to, if not it's still pretty good as is

I guess we all just have to learn how to wake up and look past that, because while this is deep, everyone has to go through it, and see even deeper. ;)
