Being Real - Poem by Trevor Schulte

If you were real
you would be yourself
You wouldn't walk in doubt
trying to mimic someone else
You'd hold to what
you truly believe
These beliefs would be concrete
and not just perceived
Is it that hard to stay true
to what you now trust
Why do you give in
to all that material lust
Isn't it funny that you fake
the only thing that's real
Giving into thoughts
that are nothing but surreal
When you truly find yourself
you won't want to be someone else
Cause you'll be real
and not conceal
the reality which you feel

    Hey Trevor I love this poem I was searching for another called Becoming Real and you have written Being Real.
    I am writing a book and it has a chapter on Becoming Real.
    Question would you allow your poem to be included? My publisher is Balboa Press part of Hay Publishing

    Sure. May I ask what the book is about?

    I'm sitting here reading your poems and enjoying everyone
    You have a talent
    Wise beyond your years
    Keep penning
