HIDE

There is so much

Hidden inside of the silence…

Do we ever take the time

To get out of our own way…

I never look both ways before I

Cross the street…

My Non-Conformity

Is no surprise to anyone, anymore…

There is so much

Hidden inside of a smile…

Sadness or pain

Admiration or desire…

Admittingly, it is so

That even I know…

Just how much, even I

Consistently, without fail…

Constantly stand, in my

Own way…

It seems, as if

I have been…

Inside of my own way

For an uncomfortable amount

Of time, So I

Am now stuck…

Inside of all that

Emotion…

Attached to the space

That is so enormously given…

To the understanding of

All that, and so much, indeed…

Hiding, living, loving, lying, suffering, devouring or dying

Inside…

Inside of the silence…

Inside of a smile…

Inside a place that feels safe

Where we all go

To hide…
