Life is the art of drawing without an eraser ~ John W. Gardner

It’s Not Easy, To Be REAL

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me

It may sound absurd but don’t be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed but won’t you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
And it’s not easy to be me

~ Superman, Five For Fighting

Suddenly, it just rang in my head.

It’s not easy, to  be me.

I am no hero,

I am no saint.

However, it’s not easy.

I am not even trying to be perfect,

And it is already so hard.

I am not complaining.

For I know there are people,

Who are experiencing things far worse.

I am merely self-reflecting.

If everyone could treat everyone,

With real respect and love,

It would be much easier.

For all of us,

To be REAL.

You have to be real to others,

Before others can be real to you.
