Undercover

by charlesantony

No-one said it would be easy.
I peered into the darkness
and remembered my sealed orders
'Tell no-one what you think!'
'Tell no-one what you feel!'
'Tell no-one who you are!'
'Remain undercover at all times!'
"I'm here to help"
Whispered the shadow.

Sometimes I wake
in a crowd of people, but
must keep my hurting secret
And sometimes I feel so happy
I want to tell the world, but
there is no-one to share with
"I'm here to help"
Urged the shadow.

I was wondering about the others;
The doctors, The clerics
The politicians, The beggars,
The jokers, The fools,
The writers and actors.
Are they all hurting as well?
Do they think as I think?
Do they feel as I feel?

The shadow sighed,
"Haven't you worked it out yet?
Have you not learned anything from this mission?
Yes, they think as you think
And feel as you feel.
You see, everyone else
is just like you,
Undercover."
Charles Antony
