Do We Just Hide

A kind old soul

but with time a heart can turn

trouble with relationships 

we sometimes just don’t learn 

Blood flows through the heart 

Its pulse keeps us alive 

so too does love 

to help us thrive 

Sever this connection 

neglect this need 

the heart becomes weaker 

Just watch it bleed

Impoverished heart 

impoverished resolve

So too will our spirit

Slowly dissolve

Kindness is forgiving

Kindness is fearless

Shows only what’s truly necessary 

Rejecting the malicious 

Breathe in and exhale

The oxygen we crave

The characters in life

The characters on the stage

How many more failures

Will a person make

Before they realize

What is at stake

When do we look?

Deep inside

Do we own up?

Or do we just hide?
