Of undertones

The masks begin

To fall

The cracks start

to show

Yet we turn away eyes

In a nagging

Hope that things will change

Close our eyes to reality

Shove those anathemas

In a dark corner of our mind

Or under the carpet

We are the harbingers

Of a legacy of

Conflict that

Stays under

The wraps

And simmers

In the shadows

One thought on “Of undertones

  1. well said..we find hopes in worst of the situations..human nature!!
    the wanting to live is what compels us to do so..we are all too desperate i would say 🙂
