Poem: Hearing The Truth...
"Tell Me The Truth" by Kape
Awhile back I wrote a poem “ The Truth Will set You Free", since writing this piece of work I have come to a new realization.
The truth will set you free applies to the person hearing the complete truth not the one who is speaking it.
For once your ears hear the truth, your heart can finally process the heartache and begin to move on.
You are set free.
The lies, torment,
none of which her ears believe,
keep her harbored down,
preventing her from setting sail for new waters.
Like being chained
in a magic trick,
the truth releases the padlocks
setting her free,
allowing her heart
to hurt, to mourn, then slowly begin to heal.
Insignificant as words seem to be,
the truth speaks volumes to her broken soul,
letting her tread deep waters,
rescuing her mind,
to survive another day.
