No Superficial Truth

Shown up

By superficial truths

I don’t look cool

Because I’m too real

*

Blown off

With no immediate use

Treated like a fool

Because they can’t feel

*

They can’t get a hold of empathy

They would rather ignore everything

Kindness cramps their style

I love them still

Try to make them smile

And share goodwill

**

Grown up

To superficial truths

I don’t make the rules

It’s not my deal

*

Thrown off

With no immediate use

Treated cruel

To break my spinning wheel

*

They can’t get a hold of words I speak

They would rather ignore

Everything

Kindness is not their style

I love them still

Try to help them smile

And share goodwill

**

Sure I’d like to break them down

The superficial truths

The oblivious goofs

Help us see what we can see

With empathy

So we can learn to function better

If they take advantage

They are indebted

If they are cruel anyway

I’ll still work on my own

To be okay

**

With breakthrough moves

Immediate truth

And endurance to prove

This kind of love may dissipate

But won’t forever stay away

*

I want to crush

Bad attitude

Or meet halfway with a strong, calm mood

Then if darkness should intrude

We get down to the truth

**

We may forever go our own ways

Someone may win

Someone may pay

But the rules and views

Should not be misused

Based on

Deceptive

Superficial truth

**

Stone is

No superficial truth

Beneath is a Jewel

That is such a steal

*

Hone in

On an immediate use

Treat me like a tool

Functioning to heal

*

They can’t get a hold of all I see

They would rather ignore everything

Kindness is more than style

I love them still

Try to earn a smile

And share goodwill
