Love Poem: Being Real

Being Real

It doesn’t matter
may it be politics
preference of love
art requires honesty

free expression

without it
there is no life --
the difference
between simply breathing
and soulfully relating

lies may get one wealth
academic honors
worldwide accolades
of other vanity sorts – 

but they will
never make you real!
