Shame, Solace, Solitude - Poem by Tan joel

The shadows offer one invisibility,
A veil hides thy face of vanity.
But I offer you advice my child:
Shadows do your faces pallid,
Veils cloud your vision.
So take a gamble for thy redemption.

The shoulders used as napkins for tears,
A hole dug for a moment of escapism.
But I offer you advice my child:
Shoulders extend no guarantee. None.
Holes are subject even to wind and soil.
So remove thy history and turn a page.

Lips sewn together, eyes clenched. Dreams.
Secrets locked deep. The key lost.
But I offer you advice my child:
A voice will be stifled, burning and yearning,
Retrieve the key. Share your load. Trust.
So stretch out and reach.
