” inward “

You know yourself
Inside, your truth

Behind the deeds
You know your thoughts

Your touches are false
Your smiles are masks

Your preachings not you
Your talks for others

Your ways you have
Outside you are naught

Your greeds you cover
With pats of your own

You know this well
Within your inside

Still you pretend
Your mask as you

Unless you peel
Outer of your sheath

You will be sinking
In your own slush

You cannot carry
Truth on your lips

Each cell of your being
Dip in your truth

And know your own self
On your journey

INWARD
