What view do you want me to see?
All of my cupboard doors are closed. I will let you come in my kitchen and visit. I will serve you tea or coffee. Don’t open the cupboard door. Do not look at the mess I have hidden.
I will not show you the spice cupboard where I spilled cornstarch six months ago. I haven’t cleaned up the mess yet.
Open the door, take out the cornstarch and brown sugar and ginger and basil. Clean out the mess. Open all the cupboard doors and be transparent.
You want to be my friend, but you only want me to smile and tell you of the good things in my life. You don’t want to know what I have hidden behind my smile.
My life is open now. I have opened the cupboard door. I am cleaning out the spilled cornstarch. Cleaning up the mess I made.
Getting my life organized, not afraid to show who I am behind the mask.
Are you hiding? Do you have a mess in your cupboard? I will still be your friend if you tell me you are not perfect.
Who am I behind the cupboard door?
What view do I show? What view do you want to see?
Everything in my kitchen cabinet has been taken out. I will let you look in my cupboards; I have nothing to hide.
Do you hide behind a smile? What view do you want me to see?
Please let me know in the comments. I would love to talk to you. The real you in the spilled cornstarch.
This post is part of five minute friday. Today’s word is – view. Set your timer and write for five minutes. I do correct spelling. I can’t seem to spell when I am on the clock.
