I’ve sought out honesty
For every moment of my 21 years
I only wish to be able to trust
And be trusted in return
The faith of a child is hard to come by
I’ve betrayed with careless words
I’ve heard dishonesty from all around
My candor is never quite right
Either hurtful or still withholding
He meditated, ring around his neck
I saw my life grow in solitude
I had so much to consider
What words will stay true to my heart?
My mind? My soul?
None that I have heard
None that I myself can voice
And so I stop speaking.
