Trickery …
Deceit …
Mischievous lies …
What comes to those
Who put on a disguise
And hide behind a mask of falsehoods?
They cheat no one but themselves.
Denied of pride
Solitude’s a paltry partner.
Yet alone you walk
When in the shadow of deception
Do you stalk.
Emerge from the darkness
And truly see
How sweet is the light.
Such delight!
When all is bright and true:
The real you …
Exposed …
Standing naked,
Fresh and clean
Nothing between you and glory.
Hide not your story.
No need to embellish.
Your truth please relish:
You’re a star
Just as you are
A beautiful treasure
Loved beyond measure
Come out, come out
Wherever you are…
