435 – Peace

Endless game
Of hide and seek
In plain sight.

Pretending hard
To be invisible
To ourselves.

Complex lies
Lovingly crafted
And maintained.

Of mirrors
And illusion.

Stable, heavy,
And eternal.

Until life’s teeth
Strip flesh
To the bones.

Naked truth
For the wolves
To gnaw on.

What freedom.

What peace.
