We Drink Poetry Prompt #13: Weakness

Papi  at We Drink has given us a fine prompt:  Weakness. I will let you off easily this week with the form of your choice.

@)–>–>—

a weakness

a weakness

a failing in your knees
fumbling for excuses
to justify
or dignify
the fear
that

lies within…

a weakness
a failing in the spirit
pretending
that
courage is your virtue

by

using violence
to
project
onto
others
the weakness that you fear…

a weakness
hidden from yourself
which others plainly see…

but

the lies

 you tell yourself
keeps you inside
your prison
and alone.
