I Am Your Truth

I Am Your Truth In life we seek but rarely find the salve to sooth the soul and mind. Affliction felt since early youth. We learn to survive accepting pain that comes and goes like falling rain. Absolute - I am your truth. You can rock with me. You can roll with me. Touch the depths inside your soul with me, for I belong to only you. You can ride with me. You can hide with me. Cross the boundaries of your skies with me. Absolute - I am your truth. I will build your house as I shatter your walls. I'll heal your wounds though I caused your falls. With all my hurt comes all my help. As you choke yourself on a taste so sweet. Addictions in your life you seek. Absolute - I am your truth. You can drown with me, wear your crown with me, in righteousness or sorrow deep. All your secrets I will keep with me As you cling to my sting you will weep with me. Absolute - I am your truth You'll make your way through the life you choose. In all you'll find and all you'll lose, from brightest days to blackest nights. You were born with me. You will die with me. In a grave, so still, you will lie with me. Absolute - I am your truth. -Jeannie Minor

Very nice work. I liked the rhythm, the contradictions in the lines, the paradox of each verse... thought provoking also. Really like it.

Thank you, this is actually the first piece I ever wrote and it ignited a passion for poetry. Now, all I think about is wanting to be a better writer. Please feel free to critique and give direction, I'm as new to this as I can be.
