I’m Trying to Let Go

“I know you want an opinion

You are like all of us, craving acceptance.

So wary this time of letting one gel.

We’ve other been hurt and paid a price.

We wear it;

It hides behind our smiles.

Our turning heads and wandering eyes tell of places

We would rather not go.

My words are like water;

Once they spill, they go to every place.

“But what do you think?”

“The question should be, what do you know?

That’s what matters.

But we all want peace.”

Prompt: A poem in the form of a letter.
