Hiding Inside

Who speaks
with integrity
sharing views
heavy

When
what ensues
is telling

Life exposes
what lies
in one’s dwelling

Whether
life delights
or unfolds
to behold
hellish
ness

Chaos created
from the mind’s
mess

Time defines
the lines
that test
whether the words
that caress
are honest
or careless
cause
to make
right choices
in which
voices
to invest
and which
creates noises
toying
creates thrust
fast forward
toward
the horrid
torrid
riding the torrent
we either
glide
or work
to get hurt
hurtling onward
The drive
to hide
behind
we decry
the unjust
claiming
to be helpless
is selfish
indulgence
complicit
involvement
in the spirit
of stupid
ignorant
recklessness

And that’s ok
but beware
of what
ending
you’ll find
hiding inside
