“Beyond The Truth” By Akeem K. Cordes

Beyond The Truth (These Eyes)

These eyes, they see everything

Even some hidden things

Don’t try to hide what you don’t want to be seen

Don’t lie to me

I have done to other people what you’re trying to do to me

So I know the game very well

And if you don’t think so

Only time will tell

I have manipulated many minds and caused them to believe

That the person who stood before them

Was more than who they’d seen

My life is more than just a “blip” on the radar screen

I remain calm whenever someone tries to talk to me

These eyes, they see everything

Everyone’s eyes tell a story

And body language says more than what’s being expressed verbally

So I can tell when you’re lying to me

When you speak to me

I look at you in your eyes

Letting you know that I’m listening

While simultaneously reading your body language

Ensuring that there is nothing that you forget to mention

While you have my undivided attention

Your true feelings about someone show in what you do

And not what you say

85% of communication is nonverbal in all respects anyway

You can see that I’m truthful

In everything that I do

I have no reason to lie to you

Look at me in the eyes when I speak to you

And you will see that I’m being honest with you

Please be honest with me

As I am with you

These eyes, they see everything

Even some hidden things

Don’t try to hide what you don’t want to be seen

Don’t lie to me

I have done to other people what you’re trying to do to me

All I am asking is for you to be honest with me

I know the game

And I have played it well

And if you don’t think so

Only time will tell

I'm a 28 year old, mother of 2 beautiful daughters. I love to meet new people and learn new experiences. I have a reached a point in my life, where I feel the need to be more conscientious about my role in this world. One issue that I struggle with is the fast paced lifestyle we live in today. Everything is given to me and I rarely take the time to seek and find information hidden within books. It's so sad to say...but I usually get my news from social media. I find this to be a problem. I also realized, that although I am very proud to be black and I always say support black businesses...but the truth is, I rarely go out of my way to support black business. My spending habits rely solely on what deals are available. It really doesn't matter who's selling. I decided to start putting my money where my mouth is and support anyway I can. One of my chosen efforts to support black businesses is to support black authors. They rarely get the recognition they deserve. It is my mission to highlight the works of black authors and to also encourage others to do the same.
