Hiding Our Fears

In the pleasure of our
Self-expression
Lies the capacity
Like a snake
For us to hide like it was a taboo.

And turning away
We act this out
And mask our expression with assertion.
The right to explore our taboos.
Aggression, deception,
Trickery, doubt.
Like a child wondering what is allowable.

Would that we witness ourselves
And be witnessed in our joys.
