WELTSCHMERZ
THIS MORNING'S ADVICE

To tell the truth
is difficult
You see it in the eyes
of those you most need
the truth from
Words will only make you crazy
and come too late
That jolt that woke you up
this morning
told you all
you need to know
Now you want
to shun the liars
avoid the look that says
“Truth is not an option”
Then pull the covers
over your head
and stay away
from mirrors
