Cheap

False confidence repels me,
it reeks like cheap cologne,
lures in those who are weak
but it never fools the strong,
us who know our scent can
sniff out desperation soon.

It’s all in a very simple clue,
a person who has to speak so
frequently on themselves is
trying far too hard to prove not
only to you, but everyone else,
they’re not masking the truth.

Those kinds of people always
have a lot of growing up to do.
