Hey You

by lynnkennison

Hey you,

Do you bury your darkness?

the darkness within

Or do you pretend?

Feign the shadows aren’t there?

Not a dark cloud in sight

No troubles,

nothing to fear

The whispers

too soft to listen

too faint to be real

But they’re there my dear

Pay attention, you’ll hear

genuine reminders

we’re not perfect

not free from sin

No one is


Do you acknowledge your weaknesses?

Or disregard their appeal?


doesn’t mean we’re weak


or inferior

Just means the climb is higher

on the road back up

Redemption is near

Feel the ground

Go ahead my friend

consider your path



to find

a resolution

to confusions

sorting out your vices

Smirking at your shadows

fading in their silence

back in their



on you

and your direction

Avenues are lit

Hey You
