A Poem

True sincerity is the scariest thing to hear

It hurts to have others truly know our pain

To know someone that has stood in the same rain

Is harder for our brain to comprehend than when they pretend to understand us

Overcome with a strange madness

Knowing they know our sadness

    "Sincerity is an openness of heart. It is found in very few people, and what we usually see is only a clever disguise to gain the trust of others." - François De La Rochefoucauld
