She, Unaware for Prompt 20 Wordle

The sleepwalking Lady Macbeth

The sleepwalking Lady Macbeth (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I bend so sad this day before
Her pharisaical denial
She still believes beyond all doubt
Humility is not her style

She wears this brittle certitude
Bereft all mercy, her pursuit
For power from self idolatry
She digs so viciously, to the root

Oblivious her desperate acts
Create an awful tragedy
And to her fractured vision finds
She can’t translate reality

She wears belief upon her sleeve
She, unaware we might suppose
Her truth is nothing but a thorn
She yet mistook to be a rose
