Be your authentic self she said

I did not understand, I saw red

What are you talking about, I yelled

As an anguished sigh, I slowly expelled


Your hiding behind a lovely mask

This, therefore, is your new task

Unleash your emotion let it shine

This is your chance and your lifeline


I went away and pondered her words

On the park bench with many songbirds

Eureka, I get it, I yelled to the sky

Delighted, I grinned at those passing by


I wasn’t being authentic to the part

Emotions weren’t flowing from the heart

I was an actor acting, instead, not real

Oh but the part now held such appeal
