truth...

the Truth is ...
Life can be a lonely walk
through the woods...

often, the truth is unwelcome
so we choose to live a lie
rather than accept what is real
yes, we’d rather laugh than cry…
    a brave front we show the world
    even when hurt’s in our hearts
    we flash a smile while we cringe
    because the fresh wound smarts…
we’re good at putting on a mask
to hide eyes glistening with tears
broken relationships we’ll keep
for days, months, and even years…
    the truth we ignore, out of love
    hoping that our plight is fleeting
    that our instincts got it wrong
    and the hurt we feel is healing…
sadly the pain will never go away
no, it won’t! even if we will it so
the cuts and the bruises fester
but we go on; even when we know…
    yes, the truth is unwelcome
    yet we must face it sooner or later
    we’d surely cry when we stop to lie
    but tomorrow will be brighter…
