Truth told to tell to believe,
Kept beliefs as they are as told to accept.
May not be correct at all.
As is for oneself to discover something else.
Only to remain not less but more curious.
Many who journey alone on their own path,
Find conflicts purposely deceived.
By those who chose themselves,
To maintain a defending...
False truths unknowing,
The 'realities' to them taught to teach...
Are meant to keep them,
Away from seeking researching the truth.
Yet these days to find answers,
To satisfy questions coming out of mouths.
It seems more doubts,
Stay in the minds of growing children.
Until they discover to find out for themselves.
That nothing told to them to tell,
Can explain why hypocrites...
Say to hear well,
"Do what we say done to do.
Not believe your lieing eyes,
Observing to witness...
Us doing anything diffently,
That just may leave you confused.
And feeling mentally abused.
Because you can not follow the rules!
With them to apply when necessary.'
Isn't the doing of it hypocritical?'
On who you choose to believe.
And their ability to convince you,
What they tell to sell it told successfully...
Keeps you doing the same thing.
To avoid conflict and disagreement.'
'And you expect me to live that way?'
I'm not expecting anything from you.
Neither am I a politician.
Nor expecting the truth to believe as is to be,
Become overnight a popularity contest!
I will recommend this,
If you are happy and you know it,
Clap your hands.
But not in public.'
'Do it privately.
Pretend you are as miserable,
As everyone else.
People will accept you quicker!
And don't feel guilty about it either.
More people love to share their complaints.
Aches and pains and medications they take!'
'That also to know keep to yourself.'
