PULLED THE CARPET



So this day I chose to pull the carpet
To get a clean house
My decision was clear
Everywhere stank 
No one seemed to know why
But I knew

I often ran to hide
Ran from every trouble
I ran at the slightest smell of danger
I felt it was good for me
I was so naive

I was called the peace maker
So I swept lots of dirt under the carpet
Praying the carpet remained intact
Praying the carpet never got changed
So it smelt horribly bad

This day
We did a clean up
The carpet was rolled away for good
The floor was swept
Got the place cleaned
The smell was gone

We don’t need carpets anymore
No need sweeping under it anymore
Everywhere must have an aura of freshness
Great decision we took 
Friends forever

LENSES

I struggled for too long Being who I wasn’t Fitting  my circle into other people's 
perfect squares -- into all their
expectations for me Their perception was all that mattered What they will see and say Their standard for success and achievement
I showed up acting who I wasn’t Like a dancing monkey under obligations to perform magic To gain their recognition and affirmations for being who I wasn’t Against being Me
I broke the chains and gained freedom the day I stopped looking at myself through other people’s lenses because I discovered people wore lenses tinted and shaded to suit them not Me

WHO EXACTLY

Housed in a container Moved in it Identified by its aesthetics But sometimes lost in it Who exactly am I the container or the content
Sometimes I try so hard to figure exactly what it is about this combo Sometimes complicating other times compelling sometimes conflicting other times cooperating
Influenced by the countless conversations with  the inner and the  outer the seen and the unseen the known and the unknown Then I discover It goes beyond this container there is something about content
As adorned as this container maybe embellished with so much beauty the content remains the substance that give it credibility Beyond the container that interacts is the content that keeps the flow is the content that leaves  memorable impacts
