Actions Speak Louder than Brochures

Location

I could write 'love' on my arms 
or mark X's on my hands, 
but beyond this social expression,
how am I to distinguish between
awareness and self-indulgence?
Preaching to you lines from a brochure 
and a monthly payment $19.99,
these all ease hot flashes of guilt, 
while simultaneously they stroke my ego.
 
Where then is true support when our actions are seen
dangling as a bracelet strangled around our wrists, 
as we stand knee-deep in a bright white righteousness 
and lack of initiative?
