I'm not what is expected

I live as I am and I am me...

I am not a fashion plate

nor am I a head-turner

and yet I am real

I make mistakes...

I misjudge things...

Man is forever learning

Being real and accepting the real-ness

of what one is in the beginning,

the middle, and the end.

Embrace your real-ness

and find the path to your self-truth.
