Honesty

It’s a curious pastime.
          Writing.
It leads to paths I fear to follow.
The perilous quest for honesty
          concealed
within the secret cells I’ve made.
          Always,
to ease the passage with others,
I’ve cloistered the intrinsic “I”.
          Often,
my words are veiled with ordinariness.
          Sometimes,
          in solitude,
my life and language are fearless.
          I celebrate
the images that surprise and delight.
Disrobed and bare before my inner eye,
          I liberate
the subjective “I” that governs me.

my words are veiled with ordinariness.
         Often,

         Always,

         concealed,
the perilous quest for honesty.
It leads to paths I fear to follow.

It’s a curious pastime.
