Separate From The Crowd

One duty to self.
Serve and protect.
This beautiful temple.
From outside intruders.
Separate from the crowd.

What goes in.
What goes out.
Of this mouth.
I can control.
Though I don’t always
do a good job
of biting my tongue.

What I see
with these eyes.
Good or bad.
Does not excuse
my bad behavior.
I am given a choice.
To follow or lead.

And what I hear
with these ears.
99% of it
does not need repeating.
I, too, have sent
many stories into the wind.
Unscathed by the side effects.
