to the POINT


Why do we always talk about
What we donít?
We have a hidden agenda
Of topics to tackle.
But they somehow get lost.
Swept under the need to play safe.
Straying from ourselves.

Why canít we just say what we mean
Without the in-between?
Our heads are full
Of words, nouns and verbs.
But what spills out from our mouth.
A cocktail of censored scenes
Chosen only to please.
