    do we bypass the reality
    of what chaos our words,
    without grace
    might burden their hearts and minds with,
    to be absolute -
    unequivocally honest with our tongues
    so that no word might refine.

    to go another way
    would be the coward's escape,
    to keep & preserve face.
    at the least,
    my heart is honest
    nothing is in jest.

    now, we might begin to heal.
