When I was a boy many years ago
As my friends
got into trouble, I waited.
I was chided and teased for being slow to act
But I wanted to go deeper than being baited.
I am often still waiting
Watching listening and taking my time
Deeper is my thing still
Someone is always running game or a line
I try to weather the layers
They hide under covers
Reality... I just wait until I can see their trueness
Deeper looks help to reveal
WHO they really are.
