Basic Decency

We don’t have to talk with words

Our actions speak in many colors

Our manner shows what our inner holds

And speaks so loud though we keep it hither

We show our inner, out in the open

Our outer lies though, at times, it’s okay

We speak of lies, of blue and purple

Our heart but glows with golden orange

I lie not now, I have never ever !

To me at times; to you but never

I utter none, though I do quite often

So close you ears, keep your eyes wide open

I play my part, I spill my heart

I do it every single minute

Just open up and read my message

Rip your soul and feel me damaged

I’m here today and I’ve become

What my thoughts are; what my actions are

See what I do and that’s who I am

That’s who I am; so, nice to meet you!
