Email Poem | Today's Poetry

No artificial ingredients, just pure honesty
Upon heart and your soul inside your body
Would be picture perfect, if all would just try
To be genuine not living to try

Being someone your not when you too well know
That false is the product upon face yours it shows
Hypocritical mindset, a solo act yours
Assess what does make up, of you take a tour

There is a much better in us if we searched
Coming down off our pedestal assumed earned your perch
For better are you and no better for it
Genuine is the question, you maybe don't get

You pound upon chest as you pound down those beers
You make up yourself, readily to appear
Above all you run into, false is your M O
Humble is the road, to take we fore go

Beauty is within you much more than on surface
No need to be foolish, when it serves no real purpose
For genuine is true friend and soul mate
Supportive and listening to help set things straight

Genuine is a trait we all can use
A dose a mere facet in life rarely used
If only we turned our cheek for a spell
We'd know why CHRIST came, to kiss and to tell


and that my friend gets no more... Genuine
