I Can Be Civil

I can be civil,
I can be polite,
In hypocrisy
I take no delight

I don't trust easy
Not quick to confide
I'm intuitive
In that I take pride

I seem to discern
What comes and what goes
but a truthful heart...
That easily shows

I can be civil
I can be polite
But just to pretend
That's simply not right!


I'm the kind of person who wears her heart out on her sleeve. When I'm not happy, it shows. When I'm hurt, it shows. When I'm upset, it shows. I try my best to be honest. I try. I guess at times, that is all one can do. Try.
