Turn the Other CheekMature

Turn the Other Cheek

I'm praying my life will be an example of your love.
But all I feel is anger, fear, and confusion. 
Hide it all, let nothing be seen!
Externally I am what I should be: hope, freedom, and love.

Where is the line?
Between standing up for what is right and turning the other cheek?

I feel so dirty.
So ugly, so incredibly evil inside. 
For speaking what I feel, for shedding an imperfect tear.
For allowing other's to look into my inner curtain.

Where is the line?
Between standing up for what is right and turning the other cheek?

Should I tear it open? 
Should I break free from my inside law that impairs my tongue from speaking? 
My hands are chained.
The bondages scoffingly take my mind. 

Where is the line?
Between standing up for what is right and turning the other cheek?

So keep silent.
Say the perfect thing.
Be an example of what every person should be.
Be strong, take the blows.

But. 

Where is the line between turning the cheek and internally killing your soul? 


The End
