The Truth (poem)

Updated on July 27, 2013

Closing the door to all that he knew

He hoped to find path to himself

The truth to that face in the mirror

The answer to voice which he hears


Stepping away from places once warm

The world took of a different hue

From the one which so often was told about

From the one which many touted about


At last he was free to use his own eyes

To see things as they really were

Far apart from others point of view

Far apart the visions which danced in that mind


But there in the midst of his glory

As sun kissing distance such beauty made

Mingle with the path he had hoped for

Was a truth which he couldn’t undo

      I do believe that some of us had experiences like that, too. Great reflection, Martin.

      Things that we don't like happen and we can't undo them and it's difficult to erase them from our memory as well. A good poem.

      It is strange what we sometimes invision in our minds to what the reality maybe really is. Sometimes our own eyes wear blinders to the truth, or what we might think it is. Good poem, yet interesting and sad. Voted it up!

      Stepping into your pages is like entering a different world, except it's a world that I oddly recognize. Beautiful!

      This is great, as usual. Truth can be difficult, especially when we fool ourselves into thinking something else, or when we see others' views.

      Have a great day.

      Sometimes the truth is hard to live with when we face it head on. As always my friend, deep and beautiful.
