Phillip Coffey - Authentic

AUTHENIC - By Phillip Coffey
Crimps my style sometimes to say something remotely intelligible
But all in all the highest achievement of any person's quest
Is to began gradually picking up wisdom as did Solomon
Reflecting upon it all, then to proceed becoming - authentic.

Hypocrisy appears often to be societies greatest blunder
Mixed among pompous political gaffs which are so many.
Never smooth sailing for any of us - but go ahead seeking justice
Plainly speaking the truth, love and protection for all of Adam's seedlings.
