The Elephant

He is the sun
That Lights the way
To a peace
I have been
Neglected from
the truth
was always tangled in lies
The only proof was
The look in your eyes

Love is lost so easily
resentments build up
toxic traits run rampant
and we do not speak
the secret is always
kept within
silently it cannot exist

Denial and projection
Master of defenses
though they do not hide
The giant elephant sitting
Right in front of us
on the ground
walking on eggshells
is not as easy - as it sounds

This poem is about: 
My family
