What's Said

Everyone knows best Said and spoken from heart What's best felt is what's best kept Under wraps and sure not to leave mark Penciled in and stenciled This trace left evident Charcoaled in and chiseled This pain hard to forget We know it and thus we remember Hold onto that which crumbles once held through fingers Try, give, love, forgive- But it only serves to shame us in the end Goes unrequited, goes unwelcomed Goes forgotten, goes uncherished As they say and so as it's been said Everyone knows best in the end.

Though I don't agree with this as a collective whole. I see the inner parts within the verse and with some I concer. The wise man listens and turns the though inward to see if it is best in the end for me ... Thought provoking poem.
