Looking To Be Seen

Playing to the grandstands
Your hubris reaching
For the listening ears
Looking and searching
Not heeding the amber light
To tread with caution
At alienating
By going too far
The louder the voice
The more accolades revealed
Do not always endear
Even to the fickle souls
But perhaps for a moment
Lower your guard
Let someone in
Let them see
The vulnerable, the true
The one needing to be seen
But too afraid to be known
Scared to be too little
When you are much more
In your quiet actions
In the background
In your truth
