To place words in certain sections
To position truth in some directions;
As an inner poise truth is part of creation
It is the same thing at the end or initiation!
No matter if you were beautiful or brilliant-
As a poet your skin colour will be irrelevant.
Poems are just lexes of life’s lie and truth!!
The reality of poems is in life and its living,
It is the truth of what you learned, in giving;
It’s empathy of the world of what you taught,
Of Truth, there’s no past or future to plot;
It is now, today, what it is, absolute and pure;
They say they want the truth, supreme and sure~
Others, they can't handle the truth the poems say-
Hope, trust and love, the three axioms of life’s way;
My verses just walk in my head that I keep hearing,
Speaking about life, that I’ve seen or just perceiving.
Poems…the truth less ring of lie or the rich era of youth,
As true as the jingle of the falling rains...the sound of truth!!
