O how we value being in control

Knowing we alone affect an outcome

Absolutely sure we’re unquestioningly right

Even when we’re wrong

O how we value composure

Keeping that strained pained smile

Even in the face of the most obnoxious

Pretending actions do not offend

O how we value knowing

Never asking for help

Ignoring the urging to ask

Believing though lost we still know

O how we value pretenses

Be it wealth skills or the perfect marriage

Never let our weakness show

Always well put together smiling

O how we value affirmation

Selfies on Facebook time after time

Promoting our accomplishments

Never satisfied always seeking more
