In Your Pocket by L. M. Montes

Where is yourself
that you hide
in your pocket?

Are you guided
by a helping hand
from a friend?

Do you not trust
but instead
hide from others?

Rise above your
defenses holding
you down.

Be strong within
but cautious
and not put down.

Sing your strengths
with embellishment
all around.

The inner you
will prosper
and not drown.
