A Truth (tanka)

Updated on September 12, 2015

Once there was a truth

Which people refused to see

It didn’t suit them

But they stored it in closets

Just in case the fashion changed

      A truth is truth, the Truth is truth, some people rejected it , now promoting a lie as a truth.

      There are many things hiding away in closets.

      What they don't realize is the truth is the truth, whether you tuck it away or put it on display.

      A Lie

      By David Allen

      once upon a time,

      i found the secret

      to the truth


      to protect my sanity,

      i smashed it

      with a rock

      and destroyed all trace

      of the liar.
