Fool's Paradise;-)

Sometimes we cajole thought
With silly flattery
Knowing full-well that what we think
Is not what others see

Sometimes we fluff our airs
In spite of hurts and aches
For compliments from Self to Self
Overlooks our mistakes

…and though fool’s flattery
From Self to Self is vain
Sometimes it helps us to be brave
Enough to love again
