Authentic…new poetry by Chuck Duboff

Authentic

Phoney…perhaps,
Hypocrite…definitely,
Betraying my genuine self,
Destroying all that is me.

Yet,
Importantly, it would seem,
Pleasing others,
Playing the role they require,
The me they will accept.

The sun shines brightly,
Beaches sparkle with glistening sand,
“Hola seignior”
“Como estas?”
“Muy bien, se siente verdadera”
“You look so happy my friend…”
“I feel alive, real…
Authentic, mi amigo”
