I'll only write the truth

I’ll only write the truth

I have always wrote my poems
To please the eyes of others
I’ve wrote those songs of nature
I have wrote about my lover
I have always wanted comments
So I’d write words oh so sweet
But this is only half of me
And I want to be complete.

So now I write only the truth
And how I really feel
It’s all that now shall come from me
I’ll show folk what is real
I’ll write on my philosophy
And really give folk me
Unless the truth is spoken
How can a man be free.

I see the writings on this site
About religions, and beliefs
And I feel that I must do the same
Even though I bring on grief
I’ll miss out on the comments
But do I really care?
For I am here, to speak the truth
A thing that’s very rare.

    Well done Peter Duggan. I like your poem, Its rhythm and its rhyme and its sentiment. I have not reached the state in making comments where I can speak the total truth, because I don't want to hurt people but I do try. This comment is a true as I can be. I loved your poem.

    Paddi, I only meant when I write my poems, I never criticise people, Who am I to criticize. I simply meant I won't write poems to please or not offend others I'll write how I feel about life. Thank you for your comments, my friend....Peter
