What does it mean to be true?

truth

What you see is what you get

At least that is the how

The old saying goes

But who is to say

Who is to see

But you….

Your inner you…

Outside pressures

May build

What remains

Is YOU

Soul essence

It is that which

Deserves

The integrity

Of being true…

‘To thine own self

Be true’

Echoing again

In my own

Heart caverns.

From Deep Within

 “…. all progress must come from deep within and cannot be pressed or hurried by anything. Everything is gestation and then bringing forth. To let each impression and each germ of a feeling come to completion wholly in itself, in the dark…. and await with deep humility and patience the birth-hour of a new clarity: that alone is living the artist’s life, in understanding as in creating.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke~
