Night Owl

Words of Insincerity

In your innocence

So kind, so true

In your world

Where we all attack you

I wish you could

Just hear

How what you say

Penetrates other ears

Your inflective tone tells

A certain truth

I guess something

You don't mean it too

Don't pretend

To me, such perfection

And seem so appalled

At early recognition

Certain truths

However inconvenient

They may be

You cannot hide them

Behind words of insincerity
