IF TRUTH WERE TOLD


If Truth Were Told

the unnamed soldier

If truth were told

     Humankind would stand free

     Armies would surrender arms

          People freed would be

     Light released could filter

     Society’s ills should mend

     Our enemies might be friends

     And prison bars would open

If truth were told

     Children’s hearts gentle

     Men’s hearts fixed

     And women laugh with glee

          People freed would be

If truth were told

     A smile would be sincere

     A word, an embrace

     A kiss, a promise

If truth were told

          People freed would be

#Note :  A poem I wrote nearly 30 years ago and published here for the 1st time. The object of this piece should be clear.  Straight talking honesty although candid and sometimes painful would have a dramatic effect on society and the world at large but ‘true-truth’* is a lot more than raw honesty. – It is pure, intrinsic, wholesome and quite honestly, pretty unimaginable but if practiced would indeed create a veritable heaven, right here on earth ~ **‘You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one’ ..

I'm a Writer and Artist - since 1966, now a Blogger ~ I write lots of poems, written essays, articles, reviews, opinion + comment .. . please join the shebang but more importantly please leave me a marker with a comment for my ego and my encouragement :- thanks, edenbray
