A Little of Both

                                           To read your write
                                               It is so good
                           Makes it worth the time spent on reading it
                                    Your sorrows,Your happieness
                           Luck is with me who happen to know You
                          Every star on heaven above keeps a secret
                                 Every earthly element holds a fact
                        What is Your secret,What is Your word of truth?
              If we gave ourselves as much honesty as the mirror on the wall
                    Would the world become a better place for us to live?
                                    Or just a pool of hurt feelings
                                         I guess a little of both
                       Since the mirror would only reflect our external facts
