You try to be someone you're not
at times this can be apt
but sometimes it isn't suitable
and yes this idea should be scrapped.

Being who you are is important
everyone will respect this in you
when you're happy people will notice
but don't try it when you're feeling blue.

Wearing two hats is difficult
especially when you have to pretend
your head can only fit one snugly
don't force it to fit trying to bend.

In this world you are noted for your honesty
so be true to yourself and to others
for everyone will notice the difference
especially your sisters and brothers.

William Manson (c) 2009

"Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live."
