Sweetness is tempting.
Honest sweetness really shared?
Or a fake charm bared?

Sweetness by your choice,
depending on situations.
Or a cautious one?

Mistaken sweetness:
bitter, hypocrites faking.
A shallow display?

Refreshing sweetness,
Grateful hearts beat for goodness,
True sweetness conquers.
~ Angelica Hopes, haiku
