    i finally understand
    the ways of the world
    and in knowing
    the truth hurts

    as i throw
    rocks, pebbles,and gravel
    kicking sand with dirt

    living in a world
    among hidden truths
    revealing itself
    would serve no use

    the problem exists
    within our youth
    and no one can see
    except for me
    that knowledge
    is the master key

    yes, we're blessed by GOD
    with wisdom to
    come to understand
    the ways of the world
    and in knowing
    the truth hurts
    making us throw rocks,
    pebbles, and gravel
    kicking sand with dirt

    say it!

    I does anger us to realize TRUTH. It doesn't always feel good to know, and thus be 'known'.

    Thank you for this.
