Poem: The Truth Lets Life Flow

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

The truth lets life flow is a poem about how he pretends to be fine. He does not want to be a burden to others so his silence lingers in solidarity. He realizes life is precious and speaks the truth from his lips. With no more worry about secrets being revealed, there are no roadblocks in his way.

The Truth Lets Life Flow

He hides behind a fake smile

pretending his pathway is good,

feeling alone

with an emptiness buried deep in his soul.


His heart yearns

for a tender embrace

to soothe the intolerable aches he feels from the inside out,

hoping someone will comfort his soul

with a loving hug.


He feels an immense worry

not wanting to be a burden,

fearing others will become emotionally unstable,

feeling helpless,

growing weary of his sick and fragile state.


His silence lingers

fighting each unbearable moment in solidarity,

realizing each second in life is too precious to waste,

he knows there is no better way

for his life to flow

than to speak the truth from his lips,

no longer harboring the worry

of his secrets being revealed,

he can accomplish his desires,

moving mountains with no roadblocks.
