What I’ve been meaning to say
isn’t put best through a string of words.
They’ll tangle when tampered with,
like a silky spider web
So attractive in every aspect-
until you are stuck
right between the heaviest rock
and the makeshifts of your faith-
Which are quickly outdated
along with your second grade bowl cut.
Don’t patronize, just realize-
pride is the human monster
we are never alone in our minds.
