"My Life is An Open Book"

"My Life Is An Open Book"

My Life is such an open book because the truth comes out and everyone knows.
My Life is such an open book because the truth comes out and everyone knows.

"My Life Is An Open Book"

I wish my life wasn't such an open book

But the truth I live has gotten me hooked.

I wish my life wasn't such an open book

Because,when I feel something it definitely shows

The truth comes out and everyone knows

How can I conceal what I am all about

When the truth I live is already out.

I wish my life wasn't such an open book 

because my emotions are under scrutiny every day

Being so truthful and honest takes the fun away.

I wish my life wasn't such an open book

Because maybe then, I could hide a secret or two

Or try not to do what I normally do.

I wish my life wasn't such an open book

Because all of my emotions always show

That's why everybody knows

I wish, I could hide the genuine me

Then I could feel free in being me.

I wish my life wasn't such an open book

Then I wouldn't feel so intimidated or ashamed

because I'm a person that never play games.

I wish my life wasn't such an open book

Because my life is honest and pure,and that's for sure.

CO,

"I wish, I could hide the genuine me...." Why? You are genuinely precious in God's sight! Don't forget that.

"...Then I could feel free in being me." You're an individual creation of God with all your uniqueness. The Truth will make you free. You are precious in His sight!

Glad you shared this with us!

My life once was under lock and key,

No one could ever get near to the real me.

No one would ever read my mind

The true me they would never find.

But one day I escaped from these chains

And learnt to show my sorrows and pains.

A little time to heal and trust it took

But thankfully I am now also an 'Open Book.'

Thank you for this one Faye and make sure that book stays open.

Take care abd God Bless,

Eiddwen.

My life is an open book too just as your poem contrasts and compares the problems and benefits of it.
