Truth

Speak to me of your truth without words
letting your lips pass into silence;

show me only in action
letting deeds reveal the heart inside of you;

speak not today
letting the truth be in your quiet.

Allowing the sounds of tomorrow
when the noise of vainglorious promise is fade;

only then let me hear you
and who it was you really were.
