Being Real

They tell you to

speak your mind

some will even

praise you for it.

Until you stop

saying what they like.

 

They might have

even told you to

just be yourself

until you were

comfortable

in letting your

guard down

only to get faced

with rejection.

    Ooh, how this resonates…

    “some will even

    praise you for it.

    Until you stop

    saying what they like.”

    I love how you split the stanzas and the spacing. Great poetry here.
