The Secrets in your Soul

The critic will

analyse your words

to tell you

what they mean.

What gives him the right?

he hasn’t seen

what you have seen.

He wasn’t there

when your father died,

he couldn’t tell you

for how long you cried

He doesn’t know

the dark secrets in your soul

or what it would take

to make you whole.

How can he describe

the hurt you feel inside,

does he know

what it’s like

not to have any pride?

When you leave

your heart in something

you have wrote,

pay no attention

to the criticism,

just pray it may

get stuck in their throat.
