Can't Tell
Author: Barbara Goodhew


We can tell when someone is glad.
We can tell when someone is mad.
We can tell when someone is a slob.
We can tell when someone sobs.
Someone's thoughts if morbid, mean or kind,

without going into detail years ago I met someone that I liked but his thoughts I didn't like. I was in to deep before I found out, he kept them hidden very well, do you understand now. hope I explained it ok.

I understand Barb. Some people keep their true self well hidden until you get to know them well. People who are more open are easier to trust.

you got that right cap . Tthat's why I like people that express themselves and keep no secrets. But that does take a while to find out.nobody can keep up a pretense for ever eventually they show what they are really like.

Very good!

Applause time..... Clap, clap! Very good Barb! It's good to see someone's emotions, rather than putting a shield or a mask behind their true self, so we'll never see the real person.....
Nicely written again Barb! I never tire of your work!
