Revealed



~~~

Be wary of the fine words

That drip like honey

Into eager ears

Like sweet red wine

They imbibe the mind

An effervescence

That tickles the ego

~~~

Steel yourself against whim

Truth can hide like shadows

And not every intent

Is so easy seen

That comes between

What is said

And what is meant

~~~

The measure of language

Is found in what we do

Not what we say

For words too easily lied

And hearts easily plied

When love songs

Are all we hear

~~~

Sunlight is beauty reflected

But glare when seen head on

Sometimes there are angles

That offer a better view

If something is really true

A step to either side

Can hold a revelation

~~~
