cracked and as i peer inside

i see all the secrets

and i want to cry

why are we so frightened of ourselves?

wound up tight

until the pressure becomes so great

we are cracked

leaving a crevice

and we cover as best we can

with crummy little bandages

that don’t fool anyone

how can we expect to forgive someone

when we refuse to forgive ourselves?

we are all cracked

full of holes letting in the cold night air

and it’s a pity how we keep that stiff upper lip

pretending we just don’t care
