he had spent
so long
faking his life
when the doctor told him
he was dying
it was a relief
all those years
of pretending
to be someone
he was not
liking people
he could not stand
doing things
he hated
but in that one instance
he realized
that even if
his entire life
was an act
his death
could be
a genuine act
