    Just a thought,
    Yes, I do have one occasionally,
    an independent one, at that
    I am not one to flow lackadaisically
    there is meaning and purpose behind this.
    When I ask you a question,
    and you know that my heart is in it,
    ponder a bit, will you? Heed the suggestion
    that you should, consider answering
    like a person with a hint of pride.
    That inkling called a conscience,
    can you let it be your guide?
    It won't lead you astray, quite the contrary,
    it will lead you face to face
    with yourself. The mirror is you, the mirror
    of you, there appears to be a shadow in its place.
    Is that where your soul used to be?
    Hmmmmm, but I digress
    What I want from you is very simple.
    I don't require more, I don't expect less
    It doesn't require any calculated thinking
    on your part, let your thoughts roam free,
    unencumbered, not weighed down by, oh,
    I don't know, pathological falsehoods...Could it be,
    that what I seek is, simply,
    the TRUTH.
