There Is Truth In You

The truth resides between the sun and the moon It lays deep within all that we do Whether we admit it or not Dishonesty is called a web of lies because lies always get caught Eventually what lurks in shadow comes to light And truth is restored even without sight For the lies that lead one astray Eventually become lost along the way Yet human nature fears the truth As we often misunderstand the honesty amid our own youth Fear itself is demeaning to its own definition Because its strongest attribute is repetition Repeat the mistake because you failed to learn it the first time So instead of creating a new sentence you repeat your last line Fear is the denial of one’s own creative mindset Filled cranium swollen with doubt and laced with regret I don’t want to be that hollow conditioned mind That accepts all but sieges to seek and find For one can only determine reality based off our own dreams But even as individuals two can be stitched into the same seam To discover is to have looked Like opening up the pages of your entire conscious being’s book I go deeper and deeper into my own rising well Where all my own truths and intentions dwell I finally learned to expand my voice Staying silent is no longer a choice I gaze back at my own life And I survived Better yet I caught the wave And into its pull I gave Dark, cold and flowing Alone and exposed but glowing I stand there tall Risking more than all I have became A representation of what used to be and that of which will never be the same. Changed.

Miss Izzy: There is truth in you, indeed. I'll need to read more it seems, to learn it all. Thank you for sharing with the soup. oldbuck
