There Was a Simple Man

You become as you are as you breathe
It’s a secret and quiet but you’ll soon see
We come into our being speaking plus
Our words create the mystique around us

Look around and you see that it’s true
How we think of ourselves becomes you
Think of yourself and become a sleuth
Simple is as simple does is the simple truth
