Be Yourself - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

To be fake or not to be fake

You may smell like flowers
but there is no flower in you

You may be painted with the colors of a Japanese garden
but there is no color within you

You may think that you look modern
but you smell of sins from the past

To be real or not to be real

You may think that the truth is hard to face
but the lie your living is worse

You may think that this is you
but you haven't even looked inside yourself

You may ask who you are
but only you can answer it

Be yourself

Inspired by Herbert N.

    We all put on a different face sometimes, depending on the situation we find ourselves in. I don't think we ever find out what exactly we are. Sincerely Ernestine Northover (Report) Reply

    I really like we really know ourselves? I think we learn more about ourselves everyday of our lives. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
