A Request from A Friend


Drop the mask, is what I ask.
Come through, honest kind of folk.
Be a peach, don’t be bleach,
Cleanse your heart, not your mouth.

Living honest is the goal.
Walk the line of heaven and hell.
Be the truth in love, they say,
But love is more than truth, today.

Can you see the difference?
Can you feel the tax expense?
Are we still the best of friends?
Is it all a second guess?

What is your opinion, now?
Show me quickly, show me how.
Let’s work, side by side.
Togetherness is not to hide.

I like it when you are yourself.
I like it sometimes, off the shelf.
Be here with me, stick so close.
If you’re faithful, I will know.
