Honour in You

Silent is the wise one who listens
Though hindsight has the wisdom of an owl
It is past and only that done in the moment
Is what is remembered and judged
Many loud words to cover truth
In the quiet we hear all the unsaid
In thought before speech
We release only the necessary
Lacking reply to that which does not deserve
A sign of respect for you and for I
Communication in body and action
Tell me what is true and be you
For the fake and the faux honour none
And soon enough the mask will fall
No one will be anyone we thought we knew
