Shall I Speak?
So many words run deep,
Yet so little time…
Do I spill them on the blank paper
For all the blind world to see?
For all a judging world to feel
Through the clear looking
And see this unkempt reality?
Shall I let the percolating words simmer…
While my restless heart and mind sleep…
And then…maybe I’ll reveal to the world, those deep dark secrets
That I keep.
