Precious

Precious,

why don’t you

say what you mean?

Speak the words

and let them fall.

Besides,

you can’t

help the ears

of others

recognize

you’re feeling

whatever it is

you’re thinking,

anyway.

 

Even a cheap joke

kills

if it is timed right.

You’re don’t

have to be

an artist

to practice

the art

of homicide.

It’s up to you

to

bring out

your own inside.

 

Fear only leads

to drawing you in,

step out of your skin,

come out

 and come in.

The world is a place

we play as kids,

them become afraid

when we begin

to feel that fear

fill us up to the brim.

 

We just want to hide.

We just want to die.

Open your mouth

and let the real you

crawl out.

If you don’t like who you see,

kill yourself prejudicially.

and start again.

 

Don’t be afraid

of all the monsters

that you’ve been.

You can be new.

You can be you.

You can be true.

Precious,

why don’t you say what you mean?
