Sincerely Insincere

People today...
Are so sincerely insincere.
Full with trite expressions
Delivered from a smile,
Slowly lifting from a sneer...
Seconds before an encounter appeared.

People today...
Are quick to say
What they don't mean,
To make it seem
As if what is felt can not be seen...
Or show!
But it does.
And they don't know.

That's why at home alone,
Folks throw dirt.
Where it can hurt the one,
Who has no clue who threw out and 'dished'
What's to come.
To be a part of destruction is fun to some.
Except for those who do not suspect...
The one who grins,
Is the real culprit to regret.

People today,
Are so sincerely insincere.
It is hard to address
Through disguises worn...
Just 'who' to tell what time it is,
And 'when' they can go to hell!

    There are things that I can say
    Sometimes we have to eat the crumbs also
    People in general don't understand that people have feelings
    And that the feelings have to be respected
    The way you make your bad that is the way you slip on it
    Look into my eyes and I will tell you who your friends are
    Not everydody is your friend
