Public Perception

If it mattered to me
my life would have been on a very different place
I would be in the same rut as 10 years ago
and would not have moved
keeping up appearances
short-term
perhaps to keep tongues from wagging
has its benefits from meddling unwanted hands
but beyond this
it outlives its purpose
and you cannot possibly expect to lives ones life
simply to maintain appearances
just to maintain what someone thinks
what is more core
and of utmost importance
is staying true to your principles
true to who you are
not losing yourself
for this road I have been down before
surely enough it is not where I want to go…

tongues wag
for what you do
and ‘cos of what you don’t do
win-win or lose-lose
depending on perspective

live life for yourself
not for others
