FOX IN THE FABLE

Fox in the fable all cards on the table
My life fits well in Pandora's box
A heart refusing a steady beat
With confusion, it pounds and knocks

When to pay the piper
The fear I face everyday
Like man standing before a sniper
Whose about to have his head blown away

I've tried to play by the rules
but maybe these are words of a desolate fool

I sit before a screen exposing truths in me
For everyone to review and dissect
Could that imply I have
Very little self respect?

I've met with every obstacle
For many years endured in silence real pain
But I no longer choose to
Walk in acid rain

I've become the obtuse
Refusing to continue living life as a recluse
Putting words to good use and
Send a STRONG MESSAGE to those
Who mentally and physically abuse

Harsh as it may seem
He who falters must redeem
A world filled with enmity
And divisions of seed

May the Lord not deafen
His ears to the pleas
Of humanity, cause we are
Lost without his infinite mercies

    I enjoyed how the stanzas smoothly roll off the tongue.
