I Wear My Heart On My Sleeve

I will form my own opinions about you, regardless of what I have heard.
I know my people, I feel my people.
If I vibe with you, then we’re cool.
I am not afraid to tell it how it is.
I am not fake, I cannot fake it.
I’m not a “mean girl” I’m an honest girl.
You will always know where you stand with me.
All too often I see and I hear others “faking it”.
It always intrigues me when this happens?
Fear of the consequences, fear of losing something
or someone valuable to you?
Or just plain and simple saving face I guess?
Doesn’t sit well with me.
I am not my past and neither are you.
Can leopards really change their spots?
Only you know the answer to that one.
Your words and your actions speak volumes.
I see you, I hear you, even when you think I’m not
watching or listening.
You never have to walk on egg shells with me.
You never have to guess or wonder,
because with me, you will know.
Rightly or wrongly, I wear my heart on my sleeve.
I’m cool with that.
Take me as I am… Or not. You get to choose.
And so do I.
