Exposure

Some of us crave it,

“Just fifteen minutes more, please!”

Careful, what’s asked for may be damaging,

Damning one to an inescapable position

As a soul screams for recognition,

Remind it that the camera never stops exposing

Seeking to empty one of themselves in front of a hungry audience;

Feening to feed a fiend so greedy, it had to divide itself into sites

Use caution, there is no entourage to hide behind,

One should develop self first,

Away from the scouts eye.
