Naked Truth

Carrying the criticism
Like a wet camel hair
Evident to all
Might as well have been bare

Words only meant
To point out a small flaw
Should have kept it to myself
Only my pride was my fall

Proving I was right
It was only I that cared
Now that I’m naked
It’s something we both share

  1. Oh Michael, if only we could learn ‘not’ to say something we’d all be better off.
    Unfortunately, I can’t keep my mouth shut. The mistakes come tumbling out like the flood-waters from a burst dam. If only the witticisms and earth changing ideas flowed as freely. 🙂


  2. this was a bit twisted but isn’t life like that, sort of what goes around feeling…
