To be rather than to seem.
As shakespear said in his plays 'To be or not to be'
One can take note of this famous phrase.
A lot quoted but not a lot thought of it.
What do we really want, an heir, a dynasty or maybe something less 'great'.
I know what I want. To look someone in the eyes and see the love for me reflecting in it. To see the smile when she smiles at me. To hear her gentile breaths when she sleeps besides me.
To know I am or be, rather than to seem.
