To thy own self be true


I know you now, because I know me better
My face sort of frowned asI opened the dear john letter
Your twisted views, made my heart faint as my palms became wetter.
As announced a change of plans according to you
inorder to make things much better
I lost trust in you
for I now know we shall never be together
I can distinguished, the truth from a lie
For I now know myself much better
I can allow myself to lose sight of whom
Iam, due to chasing someone else

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
