Poem of Cliches

Written by: Katie Telling

To live by cliches
is a apparently a taboo.
But I won't deny

My -hopeless romantic- beliefs
in -true love-

or

My faith that humanity has
-more good than evil-

or

My philosophical perspective
that -you live and you learn-

or

My belief that
-time heals all wounds-

...cliches define our lives
-as we know it-

They are the simplest form
of explanation;
the -bottom lines-,
the -punch lines-,
of life.

"Be who you are" may be cliche,
as it is but 4 small words...
But there's no fluff, no complication.
Just the -naked truth-.
