Well, I wish that I could trust you. But most people are akin.
For it’s hard to know – to really know – what’s underneath your skin.
All those surface smiles. Moving lips. And empty words. You know.
Thus you have to dig much deeper to find out what’s really so.
Are their likely motives honest? Are they just out there to win?
You can’t know – you really cannot – till you look under the skin.
Down to where their carefully hidden hearts and secret thoughts are stored.
Are they just merely polite? Or interested? Or only – bored?
If you want the truth – look deeper. At their soul’s windows – look in.
It is ugly, mostly. Gruesome. But it’s there – under the skin.
