Show me!

Show me!

by Elizabeth Challinor

Dishonest so as not to be hurtful

Honest and so deemed unkind

Humming bird

Show me your way out of this double bind!

For my words are condemned as evil

Not as a mercy of its own kind

You can fly but I am stranded

Betray heart or the mind?

Humming bird

You defend your territory, stationary

Hovering in the air

I too shall be just as bold

Hovering over honesty and kindness

Until the conundrum is resolved!

Written with Amer Obied.
