Hidden motives

Often we say or do things
Without knowing the real reason
In the foreground we keep up appearances
But if we scratch the surface
We come across the spring water of truth:
A thin voice that tells
The real reason for our actions and words
Which we often hide
Do not even want to hear
When we know it
We are horrified
Shocked at ourselves
Ashamed of our own ego
That appears “shining”
Conceals in motives
Behind actions and words
Not as innocent as we thought

Man know thyself…
