Get Real - Poem by Vinaya Joseph

My friend told me to ‘Get Real'
And I wondered what it means?
Real to me meant to be who I was
Without any pretensions,
I always took pride in saying
I am, who I am
And take me as I am
You get, what you see
Nothing less, nothing more
No but then I was wrong
Getting real,
It meant to be made-up,
Trying to hide our imperfections,
Brushing away our blemishes,
Masking our imperfections,
To survive in this skewed world!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was written after my FB friend Peter Bacler advised me to 'Get Real'. This was written as a response to his advice...
