“The truth is just a bottle we never opened”

by Lartinos (writer), NYC, October 08, 2012

This is a recent poem that I wrote, let me know if you like. Thanks

Gotta go against the grain when others think you’re insane, all in the name of not being plain.

Gotta stand out to be seen,

Gotta say what you mean,

Gotta stay honest and clean.

It’s not about thinking outside the box, it’s about creating a new box with a different shape that others couldn’t contemplate.

Taking that feeling of stress that others repress and turning it into success.

Stare into that mirror with your eyes wide open and embrace

Your faults and realize they are your fault. If not look closer and closer until those thoughts divide and collide with your foolish

pride.

Well done Lartinos, I love expressing myself in poetry...

"Stare into that mirror with your eyes wide open and embrace

Your faults and realize they are your fault. If not look closer and closer until those thoughts divide and collide with your foolish

pride." Very nice. :-)

"The truth is just a bottle we never opened.." hard to top that one Lartinos. Some people are just afraid it'll screw 'em up? Excellent.
