Authenticity Q & A - JD DeHart

            Just a few questions:
Are you the man with the pullout couch
Offering lessons to the young
Everyone has those secret thoughts
Are you the one who acted on them
I know you medicate (we all do)
How often, what way, does it hurt others
Are you the abuse
Is that odor yours or does it belong
            To someone else
Do you judge as you would like to be

            Just a few questions.
