    The truth is out there.
    Buried somewhere beneath the ruins are the facts left out.
    To uncover it is the key.

    I find myself in this type of struggle on a daily basis.
    Because I believe the facts to don’t match the clarification.

    Held against me I find myself struggling
    with the what ifs and the it’s gonna.

    The collateral damage of what the truth will uncover.

    It’s scary.

    It’s consuming.

    It is taking up my time.
    But I can’t let go.
    I really know
    the truth is hard to find.

    I have this piece of the puzzle.
    I have the papers you left behind.
    I have the proof to expose the lie
    you hold against me for all time.

    Will it show the lie out loud?
    I have this bit of information
    can I sell it to the crowd.

    How will it affect those around me?
    Is my biggest concern I feel.
    I know the drama of exposing trauma.
    Doing it will it make them chill?

    Can it change the course, of this
    torrent worse inflicted in my mind?

    I know I have to say and get it out today
    because if I don't I'm destined to want
    it’s consuming all my time.

    Free myself.
    It isn’t mine.

    Thrust upon me like a chain.

    The lie.
    The cover.
    The damage it does.
    Is wreaking my only brain.

    It has come between us.
    It is tearing my heart
    and I don't like the pain.

    Tell me if I do this thing.
    Don’t worry about the splatter.
    It is the truth get it out to you
    and the damage it doesn’t matter.

    Truth, can be a funny concept. Sometimes the truth was always there, we were just afraid to stare at it, square in the face. And other times, it's not clear, it's confusing at best, and scary at its worst. But all in all, it is freeing when it is exposed. And it can lead you to a totally different path than the one you started your journey out on. This one caused me to ponder within. Flow on poet.

    Hodee...this was deeply steeped in layers of inquisition...
    it made me recall...a time when I didn't know whether I wanted to know the truth or not...
    and even times...when I had found the truth but wished I could put it back...
    it made me remember that the truth may set you free...
    but sometimes it can kill a part of you in the process

    When dealing with the truth...I've come to find
    it's quite often...a two edged sword

    Thanks for sharing this emotionally captivating scribe with us...
    I felt this from beginning to end...
