I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
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.
"Let It Hurt" by Rascal Flatts
The Truth Lets Life Flow
He hides behind a fake smile
pretending his pathway is good,
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,
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.
