Poem - Too Deep to Hide

“Too Deep to Hide” was written in response to seeing a YouTube video. The presenter said that she felt that she wasn’t a misandrist because she was reacting to a lifetime of abuse by misogynists. I felt there was some truth there. This could be applied to some men, those stated they aren’t misogynists because they are reacting as traumatized victims. With that said, I suspect that men are far (far) outnumbered in these respects.


Too Deep to Hide

the cuts are too deep to hide
hot reaction comes to the front
hard earth is bent to satisfy
pain deposited in the soul

many hands took to the task
to slice incisions into life
with the victim left alive
still breathing with desire to die

taint etched on God’s vessel
asking Hell to take the lead
with one avenue left to walk
spreading rage before the end

it’s no wonder the anger waits
brought by those who take vengeance
if you doubt why this should be
look to the cuts that still bleed
