Shaving like I mean it.

Shaving with Meaning

Oh the vices we require to dull our realities.
We know it,
we are guilty then do it some more because of the guilt,
accepting the fall and plunging in it's depths.
Never did we think we might reach out to one another for help,
so embarrassed are we.
Humans are too used to drowning in shame, flagellating themselves then turning to do the same of their fellows.
Oh the vices we turn to to dull our realities
Lash after Lash
Impurity cannot be removed in this way
Bitter tears do not absolve
Only the relinquishment of fear
Only the seeking out of a fellow hand
Only a path lit with the sparest light
Only a humble love
Only a stretched eye with the capacity to see worth is acceptable to redemption.
