Visible

Our visible self
There is
A trying
Not to pretend
A trying
To show the
Dark
As well as the
Light

But it’s a difficult mix
To manage

What does every person
I know
Need
To know
What is sacred
What is best kept
What is best shared

This online
Presence
In
Facebook
In
Instagram
In
All of those places
Blurs lines
Because we feel private
In our own home
With no one here
But really
There are hundreds of people

Would you stand in front of
An auditorium
And still say
What you say?
Would you hold a microphone
And look out
Over a crowd
Of everyone you know
And still say
What you say?

What does every person
I know
Need
To know
What is sacred
What is best kept
What is best shared
