On Reflection


Sure, there is beauty in the truth
and there is small justice in the proof
but, honestly, is resolve ever defined
by overstepping the boundary line?
It is best to maintain a silent tongue-
despite the feelings conjured,
the need to support those you love.
For like small battles rage into wars
emotions are wild, uncontrollable,
and recycle through, unending,
until lines are blurred, reason skewed.
Nothing that you stood for remains,
your reflection is not recognizable,
only anger, pain and pride drive you
to play for ultimate victory, validation
all the while you wear the joker’s suit.
