Risk

Photo by Amber Janssens on
when every breath is a risk
to contract disease
we mask fear 
with vincible drapery

when every thought is a risk
to attract opposition
we mask speech
with tact in vocabulary

when every act is a risk
of launching rebellions
we mask intent
with smooth chicanery

When identity is at risk
of getting lost in battles
we seek authenticity
and chuck jugglery

when core values are at risk
we dig deep within
to find mirrors that reflect
our deepest dream factory…
