Speak

Standard

Speak.

Speak one way,

speak another.

What are you saying?

Paint a picture.

Would you grow?

Would you cultivate

a garden?

It is not enough

to hide—

to remain concealed

in the shadow

of half-truths.

But does the raw

beauty of truth

astound you?

 

Is it

too much?

Or can you

look it

in the eye?

Speak.

Speak one way,

speak another.

If you seek

to tear me down,

will you not also

destroy yourself?

I,

who am

your mirror.

Do you despise

the beauty within?

Do you consider it

weakness?

Frailty?

Are you afraid

to love

with depth—

depth being

the point of no return—

depth being

the nail of Jesus,

not the kiss of Judas.

Either you are hot

or you are cold.

I cannot love

halfway.

It is all

Or nothing.

Speak.

speak one way,

speak another.
