Just Be

Is all the world a stage

As the great bard proclaimed

Do we play act throughout our lives

From the moment cognition sets in

Different roles

For different audiences, different situations

For power differentials

Bringing out in different proportions

The good and the bad in us

The weak and the strong in us

Dominating some

Submissive before others

Can’t we just be

Without pretence

Affected neither by audience nor circumstance

I know I want to just be

No mystery

No deep, murky water

No dark side

Always crystalline

Transparent

An open book

Predictable

What you see is what you get

Surprises always pleasant

A good way to live
