The Truth In Understanding

Can you come and speak the truth of sorrow-of hope and hollow.

The distressing days of ignorance plague us intensely, and my throat bunches in swallow.

The swig of greediness bit the world and left the misplaced to stay even longer lost.

Terror is the shield of fear, miss education and ignorance of the unfamiliar lead many

astray, damaging the well being of the humanities that stride to succeed the negative

influences we cannot, erase.

Can you come and speak the truth of sorrow-of hope and hollow.

As the ages turn about the universe unaware that the time is near to ask those

questions you keep hidden in your cave of confessionals, waiting for the right

moment to unleash your soul and finally cry.

      Thank you! We are all connected no matter what and it makes me ache inside to know so much sadness and horror is out there and we just look upon from the media visuals, that haunt a soul like mine. I'm glad some of us understand and feel the poetry of life, that helps us remember we are not alone. Love to share the poetics of myself with all of you talented writers. :]

      A lot of turmoil out there in the world. It's too much and too sad. After so much of it, just in your face, it needs some heart felt words. I had a lot more to say but, I kept it simple. Glad you enjoyed it. We need True Peace out there, and around here and everywhere! Thank you.
