This poem was originally published on 9 December 2012. It appears in my debut anthology Wildflower Sea available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo Books.
Betwixt the earth and sky As I in the shadows lie In solemn solitude with a keen gaze See through each person’s self defined haze The falseness that each portrays To keep their feelings from the light of day And from prying eyes Holding their stories beneath cold sighs Like a mere silhouette so sad In a fake dress of happiness - fully clad A zipper hidden so discreetly That not a soul knows as it is covered so neatly To fit in is all that they wish to do To form a new skin no one can see through And be just the same as the others around Not to be different or be the one to stand out For humane are we all Humane as we rise and humane as we fall To be scared and to fear the society we live in Is nothing new - the point is many give in So betwixt the earth and sky As I in the shadows lie In solemn solitude with a keen gaze See though each person’s self defined haze And see all that they hide
One thought on “The Hidden”
Calls out to the times…..
