Authenticity - A Life Unmasked
My shoulders stand above all others.
seen only for who I am externally
like Gandalf among the Hobbits of Shire.
Originality smiles at life unwavering,
I am above the horizon
with nowhere to hide as genuine in an ingenuine world,
where the masks are removed
and acceptance washes ashore and remains;
where forms and voice are clear and true
and peace permeates.
My voice speaks truth My heart dares to trust
See me. Look beneath the waves of hair. Beyond the sparkle of eye. Through the rush of breath.
For I, too, swim with the masses. But I wil surface for air to stand strong and speak honestly.
Just as I am, will I be.
That is authenticity.
