100 Word Challenge #38

100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups -Week#38 

Sorry, slightly over 100 words, what can I say, I got carried away :-) I feel I made up for it by adding an extra level of complication and throwing in famous Shakespeare quotes (can you spot the plays?)

To thine own self be true

“I am a girl more sinned against than sinning”
And yet I venture forward heart on sleeve
In hopes of finding love, the worth of winning
That were it not for knowing I would grieve

But truth doth tell “there’s daggers in men’s smiles”
So carefully I tread this path alone
Though lies may stray me as I pass the miles
And promises of hearts encased in stone
“But love is blind and lovers can not see”
That truest hearts did falter over time
The bitter smile of fate shall not take me
Rejection will not manifest as crime
A future lies in waiting for me too
"This above all: to thine own self be true"
