    AN OLD ADAGE

    Don't be sweet angel,
    Don't be nice.
    This world is dark,
    It is full of lies.

    Don't reveal yourself dear,
    Don't show your true self.
    Masses dread the candid,
    Open hearted they fear.

    Don't let them catch
    a glimpse of your soul,
    Refrain from letting them know
    Your unfeigned role.

    Angel, Wear the mask to conceal your visage,
    "Don't be too sweet,
    Else they will eat you up,"
    Goes an old adage.
