Examined

It takes will to pass each day,
detect truths from all the fake.
Allow guides to lead the way,
decide which view one should take.

So much more to feel concrete,
make the right choice to believe,
many stories hold deceit,
often wrongs provide relief.

Some lies are smooth to swallow,
but cause guilts that feel hollow ,
sad thoughts are hard to follow,
as regrets cloud tomorrows.

What if hearts create techniques?
that detect when answers speak,
unraveling underneath,
to see clearly down beneath.

Everyone wants to feel whole,
deep within each lonely soul,
allowing faith to patrol,
while letting spirit control.

Letting inner conscious guide,
analyze tales in all eyes.
Listen to whispers inside,
feel the hopes that life provides.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
