drop the veil
all you kept secret behind the sacred mask
let me inside to reveal
pungent and putrid, it is a minor ask.
in the dark it glows brilliantly bright
your sins the dark night can’t hide
fanned by souls you doubled their plight
sins which in your dreams makes themselves silently heard.
talk to me and lighten this load
i see it in your eyes the fear that burrows there
my dear, it scares me but i remain bold
for this fear i will gladly share.
i will share because i know
most of it wasn’t for your own sake
sins you committed and hoped won’t show
my shame is i knew for whose sake.
i am the unseen villain
the third hand that took from the wretched poor
my heart is shattered by this truth laid plain
but, please tell me and let’s give back all.
i wait and hope
that you will realize the pain
is not a ploy for more
but my prayer for us to finally stop!
