Some People

Some people want to hide a shameful act
Lock it in a box, stash it under the bed
Some people hide their secrets in other people
With threats to cement silence,
Or rely on a shared sense of guilt
Wrapped up in social conformity, in a word – expectation
Some people are concerned more for the after-end result
Than the now- think before act/speak
And take moral offense when their dirty deeds are outed
By would-be-not victims, or those who receive dear confessions
Some people forget intention holds sweet soul essence
And focus on outward action – so often they then forget
The inner world is sacred, precious, truth
And though external acts would be reflection,
They make a muddy mirror at best
