 Pages Of A Woman's Soul

If only we would speak
from the depths of our
hearts and souls
with one another
how much easier
this life

We hide
We hurt
We hold back
our true identity
in the hopes
someone won't see
and will love us

But we are the ones
who put conditions
on our love
by not being free
to be who we
really are

We cheat

We cheat
the world

I watch
people around me
deceive, betray, deny,
complaining all the way
about not finding
someone to
just love them

But what do they expect
when they can't
even love
enough to
be real

Speak your truth
Be who you are
Be real
