Refining Words


HIDING


Perfect body, hair

make-up. Magazine

photo in designer clothes.


Hiding bruises, scars

battered self-esteem,

abuse.


Wall of perfection

keeps people distant.


Always ready with a smile,

a joke, encourages friend

‘keep the faith.’


Never serious enough

silent enough to respond

ask concern for well-being.


Broken heart, aching tears

hidden behind postured postcard.


We walk on by, unwilling--

unable--to pierce appearances,

bridge fa├žade and bear hope.



John 7
